Testing the Limits: ROVs and WCS's Global Marine ProgramLatest update September 1, 2018 Started on September 1, 2018
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.
WCS Marine staff based in the Bronx Zoo will explore the New York waterways in different field locations - including the lakes and rivers of the Bronx Zoo - testing remotely operated vehicles and accessories. The program will share these units with visiting scientists and conservationists who can explore how this new and exciting technology can help them expand the reach and impact of their work.
