Chinese Drone Power Against Shark Attacks in New Youk

A startling rise in shark attacks has New York using Chinese drone technology to defend itself. DJI drones are being used more frequently to monitor the beaches of Long Island and New York City, according to state officials. This choice was made after five persons off the coast of Long Island were bitten by sharks during the course of two days.

We are now more attentive than ever, George Gorman, the state park director in Long Island, said in reference to the increased vigilance. Drones that hover in the air keep an eye on the ocean. On WaveRunners, we have lifeguards that patrol the waterways.

According to lifeguard supervisor Cary Epstein, these Chinese DJI drones will reportedly conduct three daily sweeps of the beaches, focusing on the pre-opening, lunchtime, and pre-closing checks.

According to Governor Kathy Hochul, the current shark surveillance program will be substantially improved by this new Chinese drone fleet.

She said, “These new drones will enhance the capacity of local governments in Long Island and New York City to monitor shark activity, ensuring local beaches remain safe for all beachgoers. The state’s investment goes beyond merely giving the DJI drones; it also involves money for personnel operating-system training.

This reaction follows a string of terrifying incidents. Temporary swimming limits were imposed after a 10-foot shark was spotted in Robert Moses State Park. A teenager was allegedly attacked at the same beach. On July 4th, there were three additional attacks, one of whom’s victim is still unknown.

Drones have long been used to monitor shark activity. Hochul disclosed that Long Island State Parks has 13 qualified drone operators and six drones in place last summer. However, the state is eager to fortify its defense after eight individuals reported shark bites off the shores of Long Island just last year. The goal is to use technology to make everyone’s beach trips safer.
