NOVA: Animal Espionage Drones hover silently over whales in the waters off northern Canada, capturing at last the unusual behavior that locals have tried to understand for over a century. In India, wildlife biologists use camera trap technology to compare a passing tiger's stripes with thousands of tiger images to track its movements. With more ""eyes"" in the wild than ever before, camera technology is revolutionizing the study of animals.

NOVA takes you on a journey through the evolution of camera technology in wildlife research. In Canada, caribou outfitted with collar cams show conservationists which habitats they rely on throughout the winter. In South Africa, specialized audio playback cameras help demonstrate how fear of predators might affect prey animals' very biology. Beyond the gripping animal's point-of-view footage, and stunning moments both candid and comical, this technology is giving wildlife managers insights that could help them fight extinction and habitat loss.

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS

Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.

Item can only be shipped to US destinations.
