In-depth study into the whales of New York to begin

A whale population that frequents the waters around New York in the US is to be fully analysed for the first time. Scientists are hoping that new information about this little know population will help protect them.

The whales live in, feed and travel through the New York Bight – a stretch of water spanning New York to New Jersey and have to navigate one of the busiest shipping areas in the world.

Species include humpback whales, which are regularly spotted off Brooklyn, fin whales, critically endangered North Atlantic right whales, minke and sperm whales.

Acoustic monitoring equipment has been dropped into the water off the coast of Long Island and it is hoped the data it feeds back will reveal more about the habits of these amazing creatures.
