Research Fund - 17/09
Congratulations, Catherine Cushenan, who just receivd a 500 Euros grant from us, which will contribute to the costs of her scientific research using aerial survey equipment in Perth, Australia. Catherine is working with Global Fin Print, a worldwide collaboration whose goal is to identify biodiversity hotspots, refuge areas for elasmobranchs and ‘bright spots’ where sustainable fishing and MPAs are proving to be successful, using baited remote underwater video surveys (BRUVs), one of the most accurate measures of biodiversity currently available. She is simultaneously collecting data through aerial surveys, using a drone (so quite literally, Flying Sharks!). Well done, Catherine!
