The SCAR Action Group Remote Sensing of Birds and Animals and the SOOS working group Censusing Animal Populations from Space (CAPS) will have a meeting during SCAR2020. The meeting will take place on Saturday, 08, 2 pm to 6 pm. It gives the opportunity to present and discuss new developments and research in using satellite and drone technology in the Antarctic. A specific attention will be given on the response of wildlife to drones and the related guidelines. We will also discuss the continuation and re-focusing of the SOOS CAPS project beyond 2020. The agenda and the exact location of the meeting will be announced in a few weeks.

Registration for the meeting is not necessary, but to estimate the size of the room we book for the meeting, it would be helpful to get information if you intend to participate.

Please let us know if there is any contribution you want to share with us about your own experiences with relevance for the work with drones in Antarctic Biology. Please forward this message to anyone who could be interested in this matter.
