Drone-Assisted Salvage Operation

First Nations communities are keenly interested in preserving their history so, if you operate a trapline in their traditional territory, it’s appreciated if you document signs of old graves and trapping cabins and then let them know.

We haven’t spotted any of those (yet) but, with the aid of a drone, I did find a long-abandoned kayak with some repairable holes in it. This video shows how found and retrieved it.

The equipment used for this video consisted of a DJI Mini 3 Pro (drone) and a DJI Osmo Action 4 camera.
