Drone footage helps turtle conservation


Today’s Video of the Day comes from the University of Exeter and features a look at how drone footage is helping aid turtle conservation.

Drones allow scientists to track turtles over large areas in difficult-to-reach locations, both during the day and night.

According to this team of researchers, the footage can also help increase public interest in turtle conservation.

“Drones are increasingly being used to gather data in greater detail and across wider areas than ever before,” said Dr Alan Rees from the Centre for Ecology and Conservation on the University of Exeter.
