Seeing Alaska's natural beauty felt like this is how our planet once must have been, and probably still should be. Nature is dominating this part of the world, but more important for us, the whales are dominating!
Humpback Whales migrate here to Frederik Sound is large numbers. The reason: krill. A lot of krill. Nothing is more spectacular to watch than whales side launching, bubble feeding and breaching. But we weren't here to enjoy the scenery, there was a clear goal to collect data,
without the whale even knowing. That's the idea of Snotbot. A drone flying through the 'blow' of the whale, collecting a real treasure of biological information, basically, everything about the whale in real time! In addition, we also had Earbot, a drone with a hydrophone, and Flirbot, capturing night vision and the temperature of the whales. The more we know about the whales, the more we can eliminate impacts on them, and hopefully come up with solutions to better protect them!
