The significance of the memorandum of understanding for the SAvE Whales system

Ioli Christopoulou spoke to the radio station ERT3 102FM and the journalist Aspasia Vouzi about “SAvE Whales”, the innovative system for the protection of sperm whales, a few days after a memorandum of understanding was signed at the Greek Ministry of Environment and Energy.

The system pinpoints the exact position of sperm whales in a distance of up to 7 kilometers away and transmits the information in real time to inform ship crews to slow down or adjust their course to avoid collision.

In mid-July, a memorandum of understanding was signed between the Greek Ministry of Environment and Energy, the Natural Environment & Climate Change Agency (NECCA), The Green Tank and OceanCare to undertake all the necessary actions for the effective development and full operation of “SAvE Whales”.
