Debris Island / Product

Debris Island
Debris Island

As global temperatures rise, the polar ice floes begin to melt, and the animals' former homes have been destroyed to some extent. Made of lightweight composite metal, " Debris Island" float in the sea, providing an artificial habitat for polar animals. It mimics the shape of glaciers and are easy to blend into the polar environment. At the same time, there are GPS and pressure sensors built into the Debris Island, which can not only observe and recover the "debris island", but also help the volunteers to rescue the animals if they were trapped on the debris island for a long time.
