The giant search for the Loch Ness Monster has started

After decades, another great search. A 21st century search for the mythical Loch Ness Monster began in Scotland on Saturday.

Drones equipped with infrared cameras and an underwater microphone to listen for unusual sounds in the loch, plus 200 volunteers who will monitor the body of water from land.

That’s what the “search operation”, which got underway in the north of Scotland on Saturday, looks like. The search is on for an even more famous mythical creature in the famous Loch Ness.

The modern myth of the “loch ness” began 90 years ago and has been cycled ever since. “Nessie”, as the “Loch Ness” is also known, has inspired literary works, TV shows and films ever since. It has also given a boost to the tourism industry.
The latest search for the mythical creature, which is thought to resemble a Mesozoic marine reptile or whale, was organised by the Loch Ness Centre, based in the Scottish village of Drumnadrochit.
It is the largest such event since 1972, it said. According to the BBC, the last major search was the deployment of 24 boats with sonar and operating on the principle of echolocation.

In 2019, scientists said the creatures people may have spotted and mistaken for “lochneska” may be giant eels.

Even a survey by extracting DNA from a water sample did not confirm the presence of large animals corresponding to the mythical creature. Loch Ness is the largest freshwater loch by volume in Scotland.
