While we're waiting for our field season in New England to start, Vale is still seeing, and hearing, whales in the Turks and Caicos! Check out the song she recently recorded. For those who adopt whales, this is the song that "your" whale either heard (if it's a female) or sang (if it's a male). We are working with the National Marine Fisheries Service who is analyzing the songs to look for changes between the breeding and feeding seasons. I'm told this is quite different than what "our" whales were singing last summer. We're very excited to get some recordings this summer for comparison.
