Drones, Conservation and the Plastic Waste

On a grey day on an English south coast beach, a young woman is holding a white remote control while a man is pointing down the beach. They have with them a drone: in fact, it's a £4,000 Phantom Professional Quadcopter. They watch it fly over the beach, taking pictures and sounding like an angry bee

This is 21" century conservation. Ellie isn't playing with a birthday present. She's one of the directors of The Plastic Tide, a conservation organisation started by the other person on the beach, Peter Kohler. Their mission is to try to monitor and reduce the ever-growing amount of plastic turning up on beaches all around Britain

The Plastic Tide project will change the way plastic waste in the environment is found. It has developed a computer program that scans photographs that are taken by drones. It is able to identify plastic in these images, and it then creates an accurate map showing where the worst plastic problems are located

At the moment, we only know what happens to about one per cent of all the plastic that goes into the ocean. So where is the other 99 per cent? Until now, there hasn't been a good way of measuring this. NASA (the USA's space agency) and the ESA (the European Space Agency) are also trying to identify plastic from satellite photos, but their system is not yet as accurate as The Plastic Tide's

The Plastic Tide is planning to take 30.000 images of 30 of Britain's beach areas. Members of the organisation will use drone technology to get the photographs they need to discover what happens to all the waste plastic dumped in the sea

They will then upload the photos onto a website where volunteers help find things in large amounts of data. Volunteers will search for plastic in the drone's photos, which will help the program learn the difference between a stone and, say, a plastic button

When the program has been developed more, it will be available free to anyone, anywhere in the world. Furthermore, drone owners will be asked to contribute images they have taken to increase the accuracy of information on the database

Lessons learnt at an exhibition of Emirati embroidery

. The exhibition of colourful Emirati embroidery in the Sharjah Institute of Heritage (SIH)was a great example of how to promote Emirati culture. It opened in January during the Traditional Crafts Forum and it closed at the end of March. I went to see it on its last day

. Besides Emiratis, the exhibition attracted many international visitors from all over the world who were interested in learning more about Emirati culture and seeing the beautiful works that were on display

. Exhibition organiser, Abdul Aziz Al Musallam, explains that, although mothers still teach embroidery to their daughters, he believes fewer young people do the craft now because of the increasing popularity of international brands. It's easy to buy these fashionable clothes from malls or online, and as a result, traditional styles are getting forgotten 

. However, Mr Al Musallam says that SIH is not against progress. His team planned the exhibition to give traditional crafts a place in the modern world. They want to make sure that future generations will learn these traditional skills, 

. While Emiratis know traditional embroidery well, it isn't so familiar to people from other countries. However, for everyone, the best-known examples of Emirati embroidery are the beautiful stitching sewn so carefully onto the jalabiya, and the gold-coloured embroidery sewn onto the bisht

. The exhibition displayed clothes embroidered by some of the best craftswomen, as well as the materials and traditional tools used in the process. Some exhibits were brilliant examples of talli embroidery, for example - a style of extremely tiny stitches with bright coloured threads used to decorate women's clothing

. Some young people believe learning embroidery will take too long. But actually, learning Emirati embroidery is no harder or easier than similar art forms. In fact, many young women who started learning the craft at one of the frequent SIH courses have become extremely good at it

. When I went to the exhibition, I was amazed at the variety of stitches, and the different ways you can decorate with embroidery. It made me want to learn, so I started teaching myself at home through internet videos. My mother was sad that she'd never learnt this wonderful craft as a girl, so now I'm teaching her 

. To the outside world, embroidery is one of the least familiar elements of UAE culture However, it has managed to stand the test of time. What the SIH wanted to achieve by the exhibition was to connect young Emiratis with their past, as well as for international visitors to learn more about our cultural traditions and, for me, they definitely succeeded

Example : When were people able to see the embroidery exhibition at the SIH

A. only in March

 B. in January, February and March

C. in January and March but not February

D. from January until the beginning of March
