I am emailing you to let you know that billfish Crittercams officially are a success. The National Geographic Crittercam is a unique research tool developed to record video information on animal behavior in places and situations that it would be impossible for a human observer. The reason for its success is that the animals are the ones who film their own unique behaviors through the use of special micro-cameras. The cameras are attached in a manner that allows a harmless, first person view of animal behavior as they go about their daily lives without any human influence. Since it’s inception in 1986, founder Greg Marshall and his Remote Imaging team have successfully deployed these cameras on sea turtles, sharks, whales, penguin and even African lions! Now, they have set their sights on another type of ocean giant: billfish.
