Splash !! whale and drone

    We take advantage of the publication of this recent video to understand the importance 
    of the drone in studies, knowledge and therefore the protection of whales!
    The use of drones is revolutionizing research on cetaceans. 
    
    
    
    
    Scientific groups studying whales present in the St. Lawrence are also 
    developing projects that should help better understand several unknown 
    aspects of the life of these endangered animals.
    thus, we must react very quickly when watching whales, 
    because they do not stay long on the surface.
     
     
     
    "You have to act quickly, because the whale spends very little time on the surface,
    " which is one to two minutes, 
    explains the director general of the Drone Box training school, Romain Brot.
     
    The first results of the work carried out by MICS with a drone are very revealing 
    for the fin whale: "At least 42% to 52% of the individuals identified in 2018 carried 
    tingling scars. It is therefore clear that we had underestimated the problem. 
    And our results probably represent a conservative figure, ”argues the researcher, 
    who is working on this project supported by Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
     
     
     
    As far as I am concerned, the drone is very important when monitoring all phenomena 
    at sea.
     
    we could even think of drone and ROV companions, on the coast and on the open sea, 
    to better understand sediment flows, currents, weather, and of course,
     the behavior of marine flora and fauna, 
    as well the good distribution of the exploitation of the coast, 
    in the management of the coasts, and in the underwater and coastal works.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    What are we waiting for to start ?? , especially that we are in the middle of a 
    BOOM creating Drones and ROVs, around the world and adapted to the research 
    carried out.
