The use of unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones as they are often called, for applications such as bird and other wildlife surveys has been somewhat limited in Australia, because of licensing problems. The Civil Aviation Authority has just relaxed licensing rules for UAVs of 2 Kg or less. this will make the use of UAVs for environmental purposes much more practicable. See
