Operation Find a Vessel: Eyes in the Sky on Thieves at Sea

Former commander in the British Royal Navy, Tony Long, will guide the audience through an operation to find an illegal fishing vessel by using satellite imagery, animation, and tracking based on INTERPOL’s work. Along the way, Long will describe the impact of illegal fishing through photos and interactive elements, and in doing so will bring to life the various climate change effects and how human trafficking, environmental challenges, and technology all play a role.
