Another field season over

Thanks to everyone who participated in our field season this year! We had a fantastic group of people who all contributed to one of our best field seasons ever. Special thanks to our private donors and The Moore Charitable Foundation for their financial support, and to everyone at the Islas Secas who helped keep us going!  Stay tuned for our results...we will be posting on the blog as we process our data. In the meantime, here are some photos of us at work and play. 

It doesn't matter the weather, Betzi, Austin and Kata never give up looking for whales

Captain Pulo is our jack of all trades. He drives the boat, looks for whales, takes care of mechanical issues, and fills in on research duty when needed. Gracias Capitan!

It's not all hard work...
