Science of Whales DVD
From Cornell University to Alaska and from Santa Cruz to Hawaii, researchers are making important new discoveries about whales. We know that some whales routinely “talk” to each other over distances of 1,000 miles and more. Vocalizations can provide information about migration routes, locate prey, and help whales guide themselves around obstacles in the deep. And without a doubt whales use their “songs” for social communications. Now scientists are studying whether or not human-made noise affects the survival of whales.
