    Gulf of Maine humpback whale satellite tagging: 2012

    In 2012, we are continuing a study of the effects of satellite tagging on humpback whales (learn more). Tracks of the whales tagged in this study are shown below for educational purposes. Use the links below, or scroll through the maps to view individual movements. The name of the whale is shown in upper left of each map.

    Maps are updated daily, but positions are reported on a lagged basis and not all fixes are mapped. Please observe our terms of use.
