Effect of drone flights on wild animals

Hi all,

I've just picked up a Mavic Pro to see if it can help me with gathering behavioural data on wolves that we are tracking. The idea would be to fly to the location of GPS collared animals, and video their behaviour when it is not possible to approach the animals closer in person. However, we clearly don't want to disturb the animals' behaviour with the noise of the rotors, or the movement of the vehicle.

I haven't seen any discussion on this question in this group - has anyone done any work on this, or have any thoughts?

Thanks,

Ar
