The use of drones is becoming increasingly widespread, as courier services using drones have become practical or the drones have been able to shoot tribes that have never been in contact with the outside in the Amazonian outback. A botanist uses a drones to shoot cliffs in the sky and finds flowers that have been thought to have been extinct until now.
The botanist Ken Wood and drones expert Ben Nyberg found flowers that were considered extinct this time. Kenwood discovered Hibiscadelphus woodii, an endemic species of the Hawaiian island of Kauai, in 1991.
However, the flower, which was four at the time of its discovery, was lost in a rockfall accident between 1995 and 1998, and one of the remaining flowers disappeared in 2011. Plant scientists tried to breed this flower in various ways, such as grafting, cutting, relatives, and moisture, but all failed. In 2016, it was considered extinct as it was listed on a list of animals and animals suspected of extinction.
Kenwood has been hiding on a helicopter until now, discovering and protecting over 50 rare plants, but has begun to search using drones to broaden the search. In February, he climbed 213 meters of the Valley of Kauai Kalalau in cooperation with Drunken Expert Bennageberg. As a result, he found Hivisca del Pus Woody, still alive, on a cliff-like cliff.
This is the first time I have ever found a plant that the drone was considered extinct. Bennabyberg says there are still a lot of places to explore, and he uses drones to conduct further surveys and hopes to discover species that were thought to have been extinct in the future.
