Using Innovative Technology to Quantify Fine-scale Habitat Use, Movements, Body Condition and Health of Marine Mammals

Join Lars Bejder, PhD, of the University of Hawaii for a talk titled "Using innovative technology to quantify fine-scale habitat use, movements, body condition and health of marine mammals." This seminar is part of the Northwest Fisheries Science Center's Monster Seminar Jam series.

Dr. Bejder is the director of the marine mammal research program at the University of Hawaii. His program evaluates cetacean population dynamics, behavior, and body conditions and the impacts of human activity on cetaceans. He uses innovative technology including non-invasive suction cup tagging and unmanned aerial vehicles to quantify fineā€scale habitat use, movements, communication, calf suckling rates and body condition of marine mammals.
