Abstract:

The long-term goal of this project is to quantify the behavior of mother-calf pairs from the North Atlantic right whale Eubalaena glacialis to determine a why mothers and calves are more susceptible to collisions with vessels and, b determine the vocal behavior of this critical life stage to assess the effectiveness of passive acoustic monitoring to detect mother-calf pairs in important habitat areas.
