One thought on “Science in Progress: Seals and Drones

  1. I thought they used RFiD chips to tag elephant seals, I never would have thought that they just glued devices to them, or that they marked them with dyes (modified hair dye at that).

    Side note to this:

    What it the extinction threshold numbers? (or should I ask how is it calculated, and is it the same for most species)

    This was more interesting then I would have thought, and continues to be a great series on Tested, totally worth the Premium membership.
