A whale's eye view of Antarctica  :o  ;D

Unlocking the mysterious lives of whales with camera tagging

Whales are awe-inspiring and often elusive creatures. Their distribution and critical feeding areas are currently poorly understood, and as climate change and krill fishing increase, our time to learn more about these giant mammals is running out. However, with the help of Dr. Ari Friedlaender, a whale ecologist and National Geographic Explorer, WWF is using whale tagging to discover a wealth of new information.

Suction cups

Researchers are using suction cups to attach non-invasive digital tags onto humpback and minke whales in Antarctica. (picture at article link)

These tags contain both sensors and a ‘whale cam,’ which take us on a day in the life of a whale. They remain on the whales for 24 to 48 hours before being taken off and reused. 

Full article with great photos and more video:

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
