Today we celebrate World Oceans Day by sharing some of the initiatives One Ocean Expeditions is involved with to protect our oceans.
Tag: Marine Mammal Science
One Ocean Expeditions is committed to marine mammal science programs with teams of internationally renown marine biologists on several departures. This important research collaboration determines growth rate and health of a wide variety of whale species and populations.
Internationally acknowledged marine mammal scientists join specific marine mammal voyages, allowing guests to observe their fieldwork in close proximity. One Ocean Expeditions scientific team of cetacean experts includes leading researcher, Ari S Fiedlaender, Ph.D. Associate Professor at University of California, Santa Cruz. Dr. Fiedlaender will share cutting-edge scientific research results vividly with passengers and encourage them, to participate with ongoing cetacean sighting programs during the voyage. The experts’ guidance provides valuable and fascinating insight into the world of Antarctic science with an underlying message of conservation through education and inspiring experiences.
Dr. Ari Friedlaender successfully deployed non-invasive suction-cup video tags on humpback whales and dive-profile tags on Antarctic minke whales during two expeditions to Antarctica in 2017 on One Ocean’s Navigator, together with the Australian Antarctic Division. The collected data these tags provided are extremely valuable as they will prove unique insights into the behaviour and movements of Antarctica whales in the delicate Antarctic ecosystems.
