Pest Plant Drone Notice Operation Notice

February 29 - March 2

On behalf of Auckland Council, DronezUp will be conducting a specialised pest plant mapping programme around Aotea Great Barrier Island using small drones across suspected sites.

Weather dependent, the work will form part of our ongoing pest plant control programme, to supplement the efforts contractors have already made controlling Woolly Nightshade, Boneseed, Moth Plant, Kahili Ginger and Grey Willow. All species which Auckland Council are currently trying to eradicate from Aotea/Great Barrier Island. This method can be more efficient to cover vast areas to ensure the plants haven’t spread further afield, especially in areas with hard terrain and thick vegetation.

All drone work will be done maintaining careful consideration of the privacy of the residents and users of Aotea/Great Barrier Island. All DronezUp pilots are experienced in aerial mapping operations and are fully certified by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) under Rule Part 102.

If you have any queries, please feel free to contact DronezUp at info@dronezup.co.nz or give Jordan a call on 027 3649 424.
