Migratory Movements of Southern Right Whales

Southern Right Whales

This study presents the first contemporary data on the migratory movements of southern right whales from wintering grounds in Australasia, providing new information on migratory corridors and identifying areas of restricted search and increased residency, which could be indicative of feeding.

Southern right whales were originally thought to migrate away from coastal waters to feed. With the use of Wildlife Computers SPOT tags, researchers gathered new information on four potential foraging grounds.
