Thermal imaging is a technology that lets you see the world in an entirely new way - in terms of hot and cold instead of light and dark, which lets you see things you can't see with the naked eye. The technology has been around for a long time but it is only now becoming more affordable and available to those with limited budgets. Presenter and Stewardship Network member Callan Loo works with the world's leader in thermal imaging technology and will show you how everyday people are using it in conservation efforts, show you first hand how it works, and get you thinking about how you might use it in the near future.Presenters:
