We are looking for a few exceptional and experienced volunteer drone operators for our 2020 ocean clean up campaign. Please view the 2019 campaign video here:
. The primary ship will be the S/V Kwai:

Drone operations include multiple daily drone sorties from the ship searching for marine debris, collection of B-roll cinematic clips, documentation of marine debris retrieval, and collection of onboard interviews of crew.

Requirements: Proven ability to launch and land from a moving ship in various sea conditions (Using the Mavic 2 Pro or other DJI drones) with help. Ability to see small objects in a big ocean. Proven ability to compose cinematic shots. Ability to get along with small groups of people for periods of up to 4 weeks.

Benefits: First, being a part of the first responders working to clean up our oceans. Second, building your skill level - Nothing will challenge you more than flying from a moving ship. Third, and actually most important, you will be a primary actor in making the world a better place. Lastly, you will be able to compliment your resume in a way very few people will be able to do.

If interested, please PM me with your ‘drone resume’ including links to your aerial work.

Greg

Hey Ya'll,

We are still looking for more volunteer candidates. Can you fly from a ship? Do you believe in environmental conservation? Your passion is as important as your ability to fly drones at sea from a moving ship. We have a few candidates, but need more to fill the May through July positions. And yes, if you don't yet have ship-board flying experience, but can show you are gaining experience through the month of March, we'll definitely take that into consideration.

Please PM me with questions.
