WHOI engineer Tom Hurst (pictured) and his colleague Mark Johnson created a customized attachment for using digital tags, or D-tags, to track the movements, behaviors, and vocalizations of manatees. The tag is designed to be non-invasive; it could fit on a slice of sandwich bread and weighs about as much as a cell phone. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
