Drone fleet to help keep swimmers safe at 'shark smorgasbord' beaches

时间:2018-11-25    点击: 次    来源:网络    作者:佚名 - 小 + 大

The largest array of drones, drumlines and shark listening stations in NSW's history will be deployed along the coast this summer in a bid to reduce the chance of fatal attack.

Scientists are also accelerating the development of devices that will increase the ability to predict when sharks may be tempted to bite humans - and deterring or confounding them when they are.


The state government has spent more than $16 million to bolster the technological defences against shark attacks. Niall Blair, the state's Primary Industries Minister, said that aerial surveillance including drones and drumlines will be key to this summer's defences. The government has also poured money into PhDs to improve our understanding of shark behaviours.

Governments and researchers are acutely aware of public anxiety about sharks and how a spate of incidents - such as a trio of shark bites in Queensland's Whitsundays over five weeks and a string of beach clearings in Sydney - can stir deep fears about what lurks beneath the waves.
