Whale tagging

Hide and Seek

A WHOI biologist attaches an archival suction-cup tag to a North Atlantic right whale in 2010 while the NOAA Ship Delaware II stands ready to begin environmental sampling nearby. The majority of the approximately 450 North Atlantic right on Earth disappear from human observation between late fall and early spring. At today's Science Made Public lecture, Nadine Lysiak will describe how researchers are using new techniques to determine the location of currently unknown right whale habitats and how recent research has improved conservation efforts of these endangered animals. The talk begins at 2:30 in the WHOI Ocean Science Exhibit Center auditorium. (Photo by Amalia Aruda under federal permit #1058-1733 issued to Mark Baumgartner )
