Finally! I have some great news to share. There was a study that used a drone to count Green Sea Turtles as they waiting along the shoreline of an island in the Great Barrier Reef. Around 64,000 nesting sea turtles were counted (the largest number in a long time). It's a conservation win that used new technology. Check out the details by listening to the podcast.
