NOAA Live! Pacific Islands - Learn to Speak Whale
Ali Bayless, outreach and education coordinator at the Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center, will deliver a live presentation that shows how NOAA uses research tools like acoustic monitoring and photography to study whales across the Pacific Ocean.
What does it take to become a whale biologist, and what does a whale biologist actually do? Ali Bayless, outreach and education coordinator with the Joint Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research at NOAA's Pacific Island Fisheries Science Center, will answer these questions in a live educational webinar. Listen closely to identify which species is making the sounds you hear, and learn about other tools NOAA uses to track this charismatic and diverse group of marine mammals.
