Continuing the success of thermal drones to save fawns
The Office for Hunting and Fisheries stated that the high level of achievement reached thus far should be maintained in the coming year. This endeavor will necessitate the recruitment of even more pilots and assistants. As a result, more training sessions will be provided during the next spring. Anyone with a talent for drone piloting and a genuine desire to save the fawns may become a pilot. The training and further education sessions were reportedly attended by 40 people this year.
