Tagging killer whales

Credit: Volker Deecke

At the moment, I’m off Vancouver Island helping a friend and former colleague with a project involving fish-eating killer whales. We’re attaching data tags that record the vocalizations of the group and movements of the individual. The goal is to understand how these animals feed on fish and whether they might be sharing their food with one another. This is a picture of the first animal we tagged today!
