Wildlife Computers SPOT Tags on Humpback Whales

Modelling the Movement and Spatial Distribution of Humpback Whales in the Nearshore Waters of the Kimberley

46 Wildlife Computers SPOT tags were deployed on humpback whales between 2008-2011. The purpose of the project was to compile and analyze all the existing survey and tracking data on humpback whales to build a clear picture of the distribution, abundance, movements and habitat use in the Kimberley region. Researchers also set out to identify information gaps and provide advice for future monitoring and management.
