"Is it my turn to record the data?" Taking Koeye campers & camp counsellors out on The Achiever is so much fun! We practice the methods scientists use to survey whales and seabirds, including spotting, using markings to ID individuals, behaviour, and recording data.
That's a whale of a family tree - Killer whales can be individually ID'd by their markings & dorsal fin shape. We can use this info to keep track of who's related to who and their movement. Kept these books close at hand while on board The Achiever!
