February 20, 2018 – Aerial Marine Litter Research, a foremost NGO is working with experts across the globe to clean up the marines and build data that will help to make the habitat safe for everyone. It is on record that the global waste in the seas has been on the rise. A conservative estimate puts it that in 2030, the world will have built an “ocean of plastic bottles”. This is why the NGO has been calling on all stakeholders to join hands with them in order to reach an amicable resolution of this challenge. A few organizations have thrown their weight behind this cause but the job to be completed is enormous. This is why the clarion call for more hands to be on deck has proven to be timely.
The organization has recently launched the use of hybrid UAV drones to identify garbage on the Arctic. The use of new technology and the investment in resources to drive it has been creating some positive moves in the polity. Many observers believe that if a dozen more organizations can team up with Aerial Marine Litter Research, the positive impact on the environment will be phenomenal. As much as most of the operations of Aemalire is carried out on the Arctic, they have been able to give logistic and professional support to other mariners around the world. The goal of the NGO is to touch the whole world and make the marine space quite safe for everyone.
In one of the recent remarks made by one of the leading members of Aemalire, he stated that – “In the last ten years there has been an increase of 50 percent plastic waste on the seabed between Greenland and Svalbard. Much of this trash is shipped with the ocean currents and ends up on the beaches around Svalbard. Due to logistical reasons, it is often difficult to identify which areas of the beaches are the most accumulation of garbage, which is important for planning garbage disposal and research on ocean currents.”
He further added some bite to his presentation by saying – “This project has two objectives. When using drone photography, we shall (i) identify which areas require the highest priority for waste disposal and (ii) investigate the impact of ocean currents on waste accumulation. The photography will take place during five weeks of summer 2018 and follow standard procedures developed by the international network ‘Dronet’.”
A visit to the website of this organization www.aemalire.org shows that they have invested lots of funds to drive this initiative. It is imperative that the world can be safe due to the efforts of the noble minds that work with aemalire.
