“One of the most critical parts of our science is being able to better communicate our findings with the broader community. Our tag and drone work will be presented to passengers and we will also show images of whales from above and how they behave as well as animal-borne video from our tags. This unique perspective will allowboth scientists and passengers to share the amazing lives
