Whale Cameras – level 2
Scientists used a clever new filming technique to film whales in Antarctica: they attached cameras onto the whales´ bags. Using suction cups, they attached digital tags onto the whales' backs, which also have sensors and a camera.
The scientists hope that the tags will get information on the whales' feeding areas to get them more protection, as well as give a short look into their world.
Difficult words: suction cup (a thing that sticks very well onto something else), digital tag (a small electronic device that gets information), sensor (a thing that gets information).
