Big Game Aerial Survey Methods

Now that hunting season is in full swing, and tags are being issued, some of you may wonder how wildlife populations are tracked and managed across the province. Last winter the MWF worked with provincial wildlife biologists as well as independent wildlife aerial imaging specialist deployed across the province to understand the process behind managing wildlife populations. Below is a link to our video, detailing three different survey methods: traditional/helicopter, fixed wing/Infrared, and long-ranged drone-based surveys. This video breaks down the various survey methods and helps to understand the work that goes into managing wildlife populations in Manitoba.
