About This Project

Humpback whales that summer in California make their way to Central America each winter, and many find their way to calving waters off the coast of Costa Rica. Using a growing fluke catalog of the California whales, I'll be identifying specific animals at specific times during their winter stay in Costa Rica. And I'll be conducting some behavioral studies of mothers and calves to see how their choices compare with other humpback populations.
Blast off!
