Ding Darling Wildlife Drive Viewing System Upgrade at Sanibel Island, Florida
FieldExplorer has begun the Wildlife drive camera upgrade! We will be installing an HD camera as well as replacing the existing solar power panels with a state of the art ultra green photovoltaic energy station. We are so excited to be a part of this project to help further conservation efforts while providing enjoyment for all of us wildlife viewing fans.
Here we can see Xixa experimenting with what can been seen of this Osprey 100+ yards away, with both binoculars and the new Wildlife Explorer™ system during our initial testing phase in August 2015. We were able to take this screen shot on an iPad while she was taking the binocular photo.
J. N "Ding" Darling refuge, located in Sanibel Island, Florida, consists of over 6,400 acres of mangrove forest, submerged seagrass beds, cordgrass marshes, and West Indian hardwood hammocks. The refuge was created to safeguard and enhance the pristine wildlife habitat of Sanibel Island, to protect endangered and threatened species, and to provide feeding, nesting, and roosting areas for migratory birds. Today, the refuge provides important habitat to over 245 species of birds.
