2021 Year in Review

In 2021 we worked hard to embrace opportunities. We embraced opportunities to engage the public in whale conservation through documentaries, global expeditions, education programs, and digitizing our 50 years of whale recordings. Opportunities to develop new non-invasive technology, opportunities to collect data and study the health of whale populations across the globe, opportunities to collaborate with other like-minded researchers, scientists, technologists, artists, and educators. Please see the great imagery below of what your support accomplished this year.
