About This Project
View into Vocalizations, making affordable tags from smartwatches to track humpback whales and what they are saying
Cetos Research Organization
At Cetos Research Organization we specialize in underwater video of Hawaiian humpback whales. We are the scientist team that discovered calves make sounds. Now we're back to create a cheap tag (~$300) to track humpbacks. Our prototypes worked last season; now we need to make more and field test them. We can track humpback movements above and below water and map these movements to behaviors or calls also recorded on video. We share our results with policy makers to help protect humpback whales.
