Photogrammetry of Cetaceans
Dr. Lance Barrett-Lenard

In recent years, Dr. Lance Barrett-Lenard, along with colleagues, has been studying cetaceans from the air - with a drone specially equipped with a camera. Photographing and videoing whales from above is providing valuable information on body condition, size and behaviours that are impossible to observe in any other way, with neglible impact on the animals being studied.

Dr. Lance Barrett- Lenard is the Senior Research Scientist at the Vancouver Aquarium's Cetacean Research Lab.
