Beaked Whales?

Last week I joined the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s reseach ship, the Martin Sheen. We will be supporting scientists studying beaked whales off the Pacific coast of Baja California. My role will be drone operator, tasked with documenting the marine mammals from the air when they surface. The scientists, who are all from Mexico, will be taking tissue samples for heavy metal and DNA testing as well as recording the whales songs.
