Here’s a great article citing drones doing good, from Gizmag.  The article talks about how drones can reduce the cost of forest conservation.   I love seeing articles like this to help counterbalance the complete paranoia there is regarding drones.

I especially liked the part where they say that a $1500 drone could be used to replace LiDAR (short for light detection and ranging) flights, which can cost $20,000 PER FLIGHT!
