Drone Captures Incredible Footage of Dolphin Stampede

Smart PR move, drones.

Apparently, there is a positive aspect to drones (besides their ability to deliver useless things to lazy people.) The technology offers a surprisingly noninvasive way to capture footage of wildlife—such as this insane video of a DOLPHIN STAMPEDE. Watch to the end for bonus baby humpbacks.

Yup, that is 1,000 dolphins stampeding off California like a pack of wild stallions.

Horrifying aspect of drones aside, I have to agree with Captain Dave of Dolphin Safari,who launched a quadcopter drone in order to capture the aerial footage. Says the Cap’n,

I have not been this excited about a new technology since we built our underwater viewing pods on our whale watching boat. Drones are going to change how we view the animal world.

Yeehaw!
