As the oceans’ largest creatures, whales hold a certain fascination for marine biologists. Between their intelligence, enchanting calls of communication across the water and sheer size, whales are viewed as a species worth studying and worth protecting. Researchers at Oregon State University in particular want to learn more. Thanks to a recent grant from the US Navy, scientists at Oregon State University have been tagging blue whales and fin whales off the coast of southern California this summer to learn more about their movements, especially around feeding grounds where ship traffic frequently passes through.
