A long-term Griffith University-led study has for the first time used biochemical tracers in whale blubber to track the diet of humpback whales.
Griffith University researchers are using humpback whales as “canaries in thecoalmine” to tell them what’s happening in Antarctica. A team lead byAssociate Professor Susan Bengtson Nash, of Griffith’s Southern Ocean Persistent Organic PollutantsProgram (SOPOPP), has beenmonitoring the East coast of Australia migrating population for the past 10 years. Professor Bengston Nash said they used the […]
While humpback whales have occasionally been observed feeding during their seasonal migration along the east coast of Australia, a Griffith University research team has recently uncovered the first biochemical evidence of “snacking” during migration
