Scientists use daily UAVs to detect and monitor marine giant animals in shallow water

according to the latest research of North Carolina State University, small consumer UAVs can be used to detect and monitor marine giant animals (basically large marine animals) in shallow water. The team has proved that the four axis consumption UAV is an economical, simple and non-invasive method, which can collect reliable data on species abundance and distribution from many locations

many species of marine megafauna are difficult to monitor because of their large distribution and difficulties in capturing and handling such large organisms. Although aerial surveys are by no means a new concept in marine wildlife research, they often involve the use of small aircraft or old unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with expensive Solvay's special attention to China's implants and medical equipment. However, the progress of off the shelf consumer drones has increased image clarity at a relatively small cost. The UAV used in this study is DJI Phantom 2 vision+

researchers at North Carolina State University said that UAV survey is also a good method to monitor shallow water and giant animal species. 4 The control system is damaged, because they will not cause invasion injury and avoid obstructing the movement of the valve core. More traditional monitoring methods, such as using boats or stingers, are more invasive and may harm individuals or change their movement patterns

with UAV, different kinds of cartilaginous fish can be detected and recognized in all places: lemon shark, nurse shark, bat head shark, southern stingray reaction display and spotted eagle eye. Hawksbill and green turtle species are also obvious in the camera, but it is impossible to distinguish them. Surprisingly, the team of scientists also proved that water quality will not affect detectability. Put the bait shark underwater in two places with different water cleanliness, and the UAV can recognize all the bait
