Planting tree seeds with drones in Australia, where forests were razed by the devastating bushfires of 2019-20, is part of a pilot plan about to begin to restore koala habitats and save the marsupials from extinction.

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF-Australia) project, which aims to plant 100,000 trees in three years, will begin with the launch of a drone in April or May, when the summer rains caused by La Niña end, restoration manager Stuart Blanch told Efe. EFE-EPA
