Three years of 'health check-ups' on Oregon's summer resident gray whales shows a compelling relationship between whales' overall body condition and changing ocean conditions that likely limited.

      In this study we use a combination of methods to link whale stress with varying ambient sound level conditions. We monitor coastal ambient ocean noise using hydrophones, assess stress levels in gray whales through fecal sample collection and analysis, use drones to document whale behavior and body condition, and deploy GoPro camera drops and. The whale data came from 31 years’ worth of data on gray whale strandings, pared down to the events when the whales seemed to have been beached alive and unharmed, rather than because of.

      A reading of Whale Journey, a fact-filled picture book by Vivian French, launches a study of the life cycle and migration of three generations of gray whales. The interdisciplinary lesson offers opportunities extensions into all subject.
