Animal Social Networks
5 x 60'
Scientists have been observing animals for a long time and working to understand their behavior. At first, binoculars, a camera and notebooks were their tools. Patience, time, and keen observation skills their trademark. Now, technology has made it possible for hidden cameras, GPSs, drones and computers to be added to their arsenal making it possible to observe from far away, without disturbing the animals, and detect new behaviors. And the number of researchers equipped with these modern instruments has multiplied around the world. We went to visit them and they revealed to us their discoveries.
