The Wildlife Conservation Society's Global Marine Program is exploring the innovative ways that ROV technology can advance marine conservation. Our team, based in the Bronx Zoo, will identify the range of applications of ROVs, test assorted accessories, and see how we can expand this technology to our more than 25 marine field programs around the world. We will offer demos to visiting staff and provide them the opportunity to test drive the units to see their potential, first hand.
