Whales and Climate

We are pleased to announce that Pacific Whale Foundation researchers are joining as contributors to the world’s first international research project aimed to establish an understanding of how changing ocean conditions influence the recovery of whale populations in the Southern Hemisphere. PWF is providing our expertise and 15 years of whale observational data from 3 locations along the East Australia migratory pathway. Along with PWF are more than 25 researchers from five countries gathering and contributing data to aid a team of researchers from six universities in building a model to predict whale distributions under future climate change scenarios, and help to investigate changes influencing population status and conservation of humpback whales.
