Through our Research Scientist Program the Pelagic Odontoceti Research Project led by our Research Coordinator, Josh McInnes, is accomplishing it's goals. Odonotcete's are any whale of the suborder Odontoceti, such as dolphins, porpoises, killer whales (largest dolphin species), and others characterized by an asymmetrical skull, a single blowhole, and rows of teeth. The project consists of collecting data on photo-identification, occurrence patterns, and foraging behavior of toothed cetaceans. The areas we are comparing are Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary (MBNMS) and the waters up to the Pacific Northwest along with the Salish Sea off Vancouver Island British Columbia. We have already made incredible connections between the waters from the Pacific Northwest and the MBNMS. Scientific papers are in the works.
