        Beaked whales are the most mysterious of all marine mammals. So far, there are about 20 species known around the world. They inhabit deep, pelagic waters spending very little time at the surface. As a consequence, scientists are developing technologies to learn more about these elusive toothed whales. Mark Johnson has designed a non-invasive way to study them using a device called the DTAG. We join Mark, Natacha Aguilar de Soto and their team on El Hierro in the Canary Islands, Spain, as they search for beaked whales to study their movements, habitat use and vocalizations.

          • How to Treat a Bruised Flipper: Developing Pain Medications For Dolphins

            Claire Simeone, The Marine Mammal Center Dolphins sometimes need pain medications just like people do, but no one has ever looked at how pain medications work in a dolphin’s body before. We gave ten bottlenose dolphins a dose of meloxicam, a type of anti-inflammatory. The dolphins then gave a couple of blood samples up to 10 days after receiving the medication. We looked at the levels of meloxicam in the blood, and compared it to other species. The meloxicam stayed in the dolphins’ bodies for more than 7 days. We usually take one pill a day if we have a headache or a sprained ankle, but we learned that we only need to give a dolphin one pill a week for pain relief! Thanks to the dolphins that participated, we now have a treatment for dolphins with pain and inflammation, and we are one step closer to keeping our oceans – and the animals in them – healthy.

              After being brought back from the brink of extinction, Sea otters are once again in peril. An unprecedented number of Sea otter deaths have occurred along the California coast in the last three years. But not everyone wants to support a thriving Sea otter population. Otters are at the center of a bitter controversy regarding the Fish & Wildlife Services recent decision to eliminate their No Otter Zone from Southern California waters. For a fragile species threatened by pollution, infectious diseases, starvation, and competition with fishermen, this is a crucial time for the Southern Sea otter, as they struggle for survival.

                  There are less than 500 North Atlantic right whales surviving today. Vessel collisions and entanglement in fishing gear pose a major threat to their future.

                    With fewer than 500 remaining, the North Atlantic right whale is on the brink of extinction. The biggest threat to these animals was - and still is - man. Right whale populations were depleted to near extinction by whaling and are still struggling to recover. Because right whales are coastal and spend most of their lives in waters also heavily used by humans, 72% of their known mortality is attributed to either being struck by a vessel or entangled in commercial fishing gear. But it doesn't have to be this way! With small changes humans and whales can share these areas without continuing to push this species to extinction.
