We use GIS technology to better understand when and where right whales interact with their environment, track rescued and rehabilitated animals and inspire children to explore careers in marine science.

Right Whales

Our right whale research project is helping save the North Atlantic right whale from extinction. By using GIS technology to track when and where right whales travel, our researchers are able to help boaters, shippers and fishermen avoid negative interactions with right whales.

Satellite Tracking

We use satellite tags to track the movements of rescued, rehabilitated and released sea turtles, seals, whales, dolphins and porpoises. By tracking these animals, we are able to prove that they are surviving in the wild.

Harbor Discoveries Summer Camp

By integrating geospatial technology into our Sea Lab summer camp experience, we are encouraging campers to explore GIS and GPS technology while learning about marine science in the field.

Results and Successes

Our GIS program is helping conserve critically endangered North Atlantic right whales, track rehabilitated and released marine animals and train our next generation of ocean stewards.

Program Background

We use GIS technology to store, manipulate and analyze spatial and temporal data about right whales, rehabilitated animals and numerous environmental variables.
