For Immediate release:
Napier Bay reserve to be used in Holoso research
Drum plan to use dolphins to test new sonar equipment
Napier Bay, Larkin Tower: Technology giant Drum Innovation has today announced plans for a new research programme to be run in conjunction with the Anaya Wildlife Foundation at the Napier Bay reserve. The research will be based at locations in the north and southeast of the reserve and incorporate two groups of bottlenose dolphins. The aim of the research is to test and develop the company’s new ‘Kveldsrøde’ sonar array, observing how it can be better integrated with marine wildlife.
“We’re very excited to start work with the AW foundation and the Napier Bay dolphins,” said Drum Innovation CEO, Hollis Benoit at a press conference held in Larkin Tower earlier today. “We hope that further breakthroughs in safety and efficiency can be made with the Kveldsrøde system by close study of the behaviours and abilities of these endlessly fascinating animals.”
