Allianz - Protecting the Endangered Sharks of Costa Rica - with biologist Randall Arauz

While for many drones are fun to fly, for Randall, they're a powerful tool to make sure environmental laws are being abided by in Costa Rica's port city of Puntarenas.

With no official law-enforcement presence in the protected coastland, illegal fishermen have turned the port into the main hub of the shark-fin industry in the Eastern Tropical Pacific. But with the use of drones, Randall is armed with an invaluable means of gathering the necessary video evidence to obtain convictions and preserve the area's wildlife – from sharks and leatherback turtles to whales and other marine mammals.
