    About This Project

    My goal with this project is to understand cooperation in foraging strategies of humpback whales in several different populations. I plan to study bubble-net feeding, a unique strategy of foraging that groups as small as one and large as 20 individuals participate in to maximize their energy gain. This project should increase our understanding of how humpback whales work together, and how they utilize their environment, so that we can minimize anthropogenic impacts in these areas.
