Paddling with dolphins

Leading the Way

Scientific technician Luis Lamar from the WHOI Advanced Imaging and Visualization Lab and assistant professor of biology at Texas A&M University Corpus Christi Andreas Fahlman paddle with a pod of dusky dolphins off the coast of the Kaikoura Peninsula on New Zealand’s South Island. The two were part of a research team that spent three weeks in February and March 2013 pursuing one of the ocean’s most iconic yet elusive species: the sperm whale. The team captured sound, depth, and photo identification data on 15 individual sperm whales. This research was performed under New Zealand Department of Conservation Permit number 35604-MAR.
