Right whale tagging

Right Whale Ecology and Conservation

WHOI biologist Mark Baumgartner attaches an archival suction-cup tag to a North Atlantic right whale while the NOAA Ship Delaware II stands ready to begin environmental sampling in proximity to the whale. The tagging and environmental sampling work is part of an ongoing collaborative study of right whale ecology in the southwestern Gulf of Maine by WHOI and the NOAA Northeast Fisheries Science Center. Learn more about right whale ecology and conservation at the next Science Made Public talk on July 19. (Photo by Amalia Aruda under federal permit #1058-1733 issued to Mark Baumgartner. )
