Shark-spotting drones to be trialled at WA beaches

Is it a bird??  Is it a plane?? NO! It’s a drone and it’s keeping an eye out for sharks along our coastline this summer.

In a first, Surf Life Saving WA will conduct a three- month trial of drone surveillance thanks to a one-off $88,000 grant from the State Government.

Under the trial, a small drone equipped with a high definition camera will stream live pictures back to SLSWA operators.

Global Drones Solutions CEO Mahmood Hussein says using drones would save the state a lot of money in the long run.

He spoke with Adam Shand.
