    About This Project

    Heavy metals are a ubiquitous environmental pollutant that threaten the health of humans, wildlife, and ecosystems. We have studied metal pollution in the Gulf of Maine humpback whales since 2010, showing remarkably high levels of Al, Cr, and Ni. To better understand how toxic metals affect the health of humpback whales, we aim to assess differences in biological age from chronological age and link the differences to heavy metal levels.
