The top spot goes to Duke Marine UAS, who are doing extraordinary work using technology including drones, tags, hydrophones, lego, NIR imagery and rovers to further our understanding of the natural world.
Duke Marine UAS are in Antarctica in search of minke whales – the least studied top krill predator in Antarctica. Their team is working hard to change that, starting with getting some tags on these elusive whales.
This top spot is shared with other members of the expedition with Duke Marine UAS, including the Goldbogen Lab who shared this spectacular action video of Dr. Ari Friedlaender deploying a camera tag to a minke whale.
