BBC Story: Drone Footage of ‘Flowrider’s’ School!
The BBC have published the story about the amazing video of a school of basking sharks taken from a drone by James McCarthy. He filmed the school of about 12 basking sharks near Waterford in Ireland. This school included our tagged 8m male basking shark ‘Flowrider’ who we tagged in Manx Waters on August 7th 2015. We had been tracking him here for several days before this marvellous video came onto the internet. A BIG thank you to James as this has inspired us to get a drone for the Manx Basking Shark Scientific work. UNLESS someone out there in the Isle of Man is already an expert with one and would like to join our team of volunteers bringing their drone and their skill-set with them?
