"Drones Are Going to Change the Way We See the Animal World"

Author: Hugh Bollinger/Wednesday, March 5, 2014/Categories: natural history, video, marine mammals, environment

Drones are know for their military applications, as spy tools, and as new ways to potentially delivery packages. One of their unknown uses will be for non-invasive wildlife monitoring. A tour company in California  Captain Dave's Dolphin and Whale Watching Safari  employed a remotely controlled drone to capture footage of a marine mammals including a dolphin stampede.

According to Captain Dave: "the edited video was made using a drone hovering in the air above a huge mega-pod of thousands of common dolphins stampeding off Dana Point, California; three gray whales migrating together down the coast off San Clemente, California; and heartwarming close-ups over a newborn Humpback whale calf snuggling and playing with its mom as an escort whale stands guard nearby, filmed recently in Maui."

He continued: "drones are going to change the way we see the animal world".

Here's the amazing video:
