Antarctic Killer Whale Track Map (2014-2015)

  • The new season for satellite tagging of whales got underway in early December 2014.
  • We plan to deploy satellite tags on killer whales, and possibly minke whales, in the current season (through March 2015).
  • Four (4) killer whales were tagged in the Gerlache Strait (near the Palmer Archipelago).
  • Five (5) killer whales have been tagged in McMurdo Sound.
  • Two (2) killer whales have been tagged south of the Antarctic Sound.
  • Stay tuned here for daily track updates on this interactive map for the tags deployed on this project.
