"Project Flash Forest"
is a special type of special project of foresting which works on the very balanced and sophisticated ecologically oriented principle of Afforestation.
Afforestation is the process of planting trees, or sowing seeds, in a barren land devoid of any trees to create a forest. When the forest is dying out due to deforestation which the contrast of afforestation, wildfires (a price we are paying up for own sins). We can see it evidently through the pictures of California wildfires, Amazon Forest Row and the latest being added to the list is Australia beach fire.
Our planet Earth is dying and we are busy talking about future technology! We are destroying our own ecosystem than on the other hand talk about preserving it. Some months I wrote an article regarding an AI (Artificial Intelligence) robot tree which will act as an air purifier for the already in danger environment.
Now I have want you all to come across a new drone technology-based project which can surely save our planet earth from the grave danger. Headed by a Canadian ecology startup the project is titled "Project Flash Forest." Their target is quite simple yet filled with a bunch of challenges.
They wish and have the will to plant the earth fully with 1 billion trees! We should definitely help them, should not we? With the help of heavy-lift drones, they have developed a unique and resulting technique of reforestation, so we can at least be sure that the afforestation process would be carried out although of a particular and native species of trees.
With the usage of these heavy-lift drones, these ecological engineers are making sure that no trees are left out to be planted. A gas-based operating device will directly shoot in the required pods for the plants.
These pods contain an important combination of three things- pre-germinated seeds, mycorrhizae, fertilizers which makes the root system of these trees stronger with the usage of lesser water as compared to naturally grown trees.
UAV ( Unmanned aerial vehicle) technology thus comes handy in place for the selection and finalization of ideal planting sites for these environment-saving trees. Reducing the carbon emission rate it helps in changing the climate positively and in a significant manner.
My appeal to the robotics engineers of India would be to implement the same mindset and come together with ecologists to save this planet Earth starting with our nations. Let's make India Go Green again!
Why do we not come together as a global village community so that we can find out the solution for the current devastating deforestation problem. I am pretty much sure that with this plan of action we will be able to help each other to make our Earth green again.
Even If one does not make complete sense but still we would be able to do something better, we just need to understand and have faith that we can make our planet a better place to live again. Let's join in hands and deliver something better for our own human civilization.
