Last year, ten students from universities across the US worked on projects including drone based ecological classification, 3D mapping for archaeological sites, and wildlife radio telemetry tracking.  They worked with ecologists from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research, and participated in field deployments in Baja California Sur, the Cayman Islands, and test deployments in the local San Diego area.
