Beach goers safeguarded by new drone tracking technology.
With relatively little still known about why and how sharks use shallow water environments, the study has shown promising potential for using unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technology to better understand shark behavior in areas where human interactions occur, such as beaches.
Project lead and Faculty of Science marine ecologist, Dr Vincent Raoult, said the movement tracking technique provides a cost-effective and non-invasive option to gather data that are otherwise difficult to obtain.
