The mission of ECO-Drone™ is to advance and encourage Environmentally Conscious Operations of drones to protect and limit disturbances to marine resources. The program, launched by the nonprofit Oceans Unmanned, seeks to educate the broad user community about the potential for wildlife disturbance and encourage environmentally friendly practices. As part of our broader education and outreach strategy, this page will serve as a portal to provide recommendations for evolving best practices and the latest scientific research on wildlife and drone disturbance.
