eDNA and technology

Technology is revolutionising the way scientists monitor, research and uncover new information about habitats and species.

We are at the forefront of testing the feasibility of new technologies, including eDNA, drones, artifical intelligence and advanced camera technology.

Environmental DNA (eDNA) research plays a vital role in for detecting and monitoring invasive species for biosecurity management.

eDNA technology revolutionises invasive species biosecurity

Featured project

We employ eDNA technology to detect the presence of threatened species, such as frogs and turtles, without needing to sight them. This allows for more effective conservation efforts.

Research

COMING SOON

We are partnering with communities to understand species distribution and detect invasive species using environmental DNA (eDNA).
