IT’s A Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s a Drone
Earlier this month WHF stewardship staff experienced our new drone in action as they flew it over the 541-acre Rockwell Ranch Preserve. With our licensed staff members at the controls, drones will allow us to visualize the landscape and we will be able to take a closer look at areas that are not easily accessible. We look forward to taking site monitoring to a new level with advanced drone technology!

WHF recognizes and thanks WHF “volunteer”, Phil Robertson, who has photographed local wildlife and landscapes on our properties for several years. Phil’s passion for capturing nature’s beauty is what often gets him out of his warm bed hours before sunrise on winter mornings to sit quietly for hours waiting to capture the best image of a bird or other animal. Many of the photographs on the WHF website, brochures and office walls are the works of Phil Robertson. Phil has received photo awards from Ducks Unlimited and Outdoor California. We are truly grateful to Phil for his time, effort and artful eye in documenting nature and wildlife on WHF properties!
