For those of you who need the occasional break from listening to human communication, tune in to the web site of our friends at the Jupiter Foundation. They’ve deployed a series of hydrophones off the island of Hawaii that pick up the sounds made by nearby whales. This is the peak season for humpbacks to be in that area, so now is the best time to listen in. I’m listening as I’m writing this.
Some of you may remember Joe Rizzi, Executive Director from Jupiter Foundation. He led a presentation on their work during the Man and Whales lecture series in 2010.
