Marine Mammals | master bioacoustics

Looking to become an expert in bioacoustics? Check out this new and exiting Masters in Bioacoustics programme at University of Saint-Etienne! Of course it would not be complete without a module on marine mammal acoustics!

In this module we will review the production/perception, nature and function of acoustic signals in marine mammals (pinnipeds and cetaceans) as well as the impact of noise. We will describe the different types of acoustic signals produced by pinnipeds, odontocetes and mysticetes, and the anatomical....

Hypmo Bottlenose Whale Project

We have a website!

Hypmo is committed to spreading the word about bottlenose whales and how our project aims to add to our understanding about the species. On the new website you can find out more about the specific objectives and activities of the project. We will also use it to share outputs, including a photo ID catalogue that you can browse using keywords. The left side photos are already online and the right sides will follow soon!

HYPMO is a University of Iceland research project on the movement ecology of the elusive northern bottlenose whale and its vulnerability to noise exposure.

One Planet, One Ocean: Mobilizing Science to #SaveOurOcean

Happy New Year lovers of beaked whales and the ocean! πŸ’¦πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

The UN has declared the period 2021-2030 the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, to draw attention to the importance of the oceans to mankind and the lack of knowledge about them.

The seven outcomes for the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development:

1.A clean ocean where sources of pollution are identified and reduced or removed,
2.A healthy and resilient ocean where marine ecosystems are understood, protected, restored and managed,
3.A productive ocean supporting sustainable food supply and a ... See more

The Gully Marine Protected Area: A Diversity of Life and a Sanctuary for Whales

Nothing better than watching some unique footage of northern bottlenose whales! This video about The Gully MPA even features their unique head-butting behaviour which is thought to be a form of male-male aggression to establish dominance.

So much of what we know about #northernbottlenosewhales stems from the work of Hal Whitehead and his lab at Dalhousie University, working closely with Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) Canada. In fact, his 1997 study in Marine Mammal Science was the first to estimate the size of a resident population of beaked whales using photo identification of living ... See more

This video shows highlights of wildlife from the Gully Marine Protected Area, a submarine large canyon off Nova Scotia Canada. It provides a quick tour of th...
