GPS and Go-Pro to support data collection

Dear supporter,

Recently, funding from people like you through the Charitable Trust was used to purchase a new GPS unit for the spinner dolphin research project. This device is used to mark GPS points during the research session in order to document where photos are taken and where the C-pod (underwater recording device) is deployed.

The GPS plays a crucial role in the data recording process and is integral to the aims of the research. Further funding has helped to supply a Go Pro – underwater video camera which will be used to compliment the capture of behavioural data when deployed from the research vessel when in transit through the reef. The September research phase managed to capture some incredible high definition footage of the dolphins at play!

Thank you again for all your support. We look forward to sharing this data improvement in the future.

All the best

Dan Lund

Fiji Country Director
