N4N Flight For Nature

What can DIY unmanned flight enthusiasts and biodiversity researchers accomplish together? Let's find out! UAVs, kites, balloons, multicopters, fixed wing, LiDAR, multispectral imaging, HD videography, and a whole lot more.

N4N Flight For Nature is a working group of Nerds For Nature. We are an all-volunteer organization, dedicated to bringing together environmental professionals and technologists, students and citizen scientists to collaboratively build awesome tools that help us understand, protect, and revive the natural world.
