The GMGI Science Hour: Using Advanced Technologies to Explore the Underwater Behavior of Humpback Whales

Speaker: David Wiley, NOAA

David Wiley explains how many species of whales—and humpback whales in particular—use complex techniques to capture prey that often put them at risk of being struck by vessels or entangled in fishing gear. New technologies enable us to better understand these unique behaviors, and could yield ways to help reduce mortality among these imperiled leviathans.
