Alan Turchik was psyched to be going on his first field expedition as an engineer with National Geographic. The 2012 expedition to the legendary and remote Pitcairn Islands in the Pacific Ocean was part of the Pristine Seas project. One of Turchik’s main roles was to help conservationist Mike Fay do reconnaissance by flying a remote-controlled quadcopter, or drone, to capture photos and videos of uninhabited atolls. Fay wanted to scout for human impact on the ecosystem of Ducie Island, a Pitcairn atoll.
