Saving dolphins from space


Today’s Video of the Day comes from NASA Goddard and features a look at how scientists are using data from space to help save dolphins.

Certain coastal areas pose a high risk of stranding dolphins, whales, and porpoises. When these beachings occur, rescue efforts have to be fast and well-organized in order to help save the animals.

Scientists are now using satellite data to help predict these hot spot strandings, instead of just reacting to them.
