MONTEREY, Calif.- There's increasing concern for the Monterey Bay, a nationally protected sanctuary, as recreational drones become more popular. On Wednesday night, we investigated the impact of these unmanned aircraft on marine life.
The FAA bans use of all recreational drones over four areas in the Monterey Bay. But Newschannel 5 got a firsthand look at why this relatively new and somewhat controversial technology, has some positive and negative affects on our marine life.
Like a foreign object from another planet, the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary said marine life can't tell whether it's a bird or a plane.
