WHAT DOES ‘WHALE SNOT’ TELL US ABOUT WHALES AND THE OCEAN?
Vanessa's TEDxMelbourne talk will ask the question; how do you tell if the ocean environment is doing ok? It‘s hard to examine something that covers 7/10ths of the Earth and whales don’t exactly pop into the vet on their way through to tell you they’re sick. But what if we could go to them? Using drones in unique and creative ways, we can assess whale health as they move through the environment in a non invasive way. This gives us unprecedented insight into marine health in ways we never imagined.
