Our Story

We began from very humble beginnings, with two innovators developing drone technologies in their Auckland garage in New Zealand. 

When our co-founders Cameron Baker and Samuel Vye found themselves spearheading an aerial baiting project in the Galapagos, they carved a valuable niche for the company. That initial project evolved into the world’s first successful eradication of invasive rat species using drones, enabling protection of threatened native seabird species. 

The project gained global recognition and support from the likes of film star and producer Leonardo DiCaprio. People couldn’t believe we were building these drones in a garage back in Auckland.

From those small beginnings, we have become the global leader in aerial drone baiting and are the first to offer a full technology ecosystem for the conservation sector. We now offer solutions and expert advice for pest eradication, defence of precious wildlife, and native fauna regeneration and afforestation.

Market demand drives our innovation focus, and our Maori values, including kaitiakitangi (the belief that we are all guardians and protectors of the environment) underpin how we approach our work.

We dream that one day New Zealand's treasured national icon, the kiwi bird, will be safe to join us in our back yards once again.
