Eye in the Sky – Aerial Monitoring

Reef Rescue takes to the skies to keep an eye on dredgers.

Reef Rescue has just added another high-tech tool to their repertoire to help monitor and protect south Florida’s threatened coral reefs. An aerial drone equipped with a live video stream and outfitted with the capability to collect offshore water samples.

This will significantly enhance our ability to keep a close eye on potential threats and allow us to document conditions in the coastal ecosystem.
