Beaked whales are the most mysterious of all marine mammals. So far, there are about 20 species known around the world. They inhabit deep, pelagic waters spending very little time at the surface.

As a consequence, scientists are developing technologies to learn more about these elusive toothed whales. Mark Johnson has designed a non-invasive way to study them using a device called the DTAG.

We join Mark, Natacha Aguilar de Soto and their team on El Hierro in the Canary Islands, Spain, as they search for beaked whales to study their movements, habitat use and vocalizations.

    I enjoyed this greatly. I was just lookin’ for some marine biology podcasts, and this is one I found and as I was watching it, I couldn’t look away. I would love to see these whales sometimes, but I have no schooling or money for an expedition such as thus.
    But if I can’t go on my own expedition, I can always watch yours. Please learn more and share the knowledge!
    Some of us are going to be going to school for this, you know!

    I have seen Cuvier’s Beaked Whales many times when crossing the Bay of Biscay to Santander or Bilbao in Spain and I am fascinated by this group of enigmatic cetaceans. This video footage throws some light on their mysterious lives deep down in the oceans depths. Congratulations on producing a very informative and educational documentary.

  8. Great video and information on this unique animals. I am hoping to be diving in the canary islands next year. I dive a good bit in the Hawaiian islands and it is fascinating to study and analyze deep water / island environments. Keep up the great work.

  9. Pretty! This was an extremely wonderful article. Thank you
    for supplying this info.

  10. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Safari.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to
    let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.
    Thanks

  11. The only thing that some people find annoying (not me) is the high amount of cash ($50.
    This is a simple survey to measure your Financial Intelligence Quotient(FIQ).
    Some that come to mind, right off the top of my head, is the inboxpays dot com
    website, which sucks.

    seen today. Weather beaten roofs need to be put back together, restored, and touched
    up in order to ward off and prevent additional damage
    to properties. If you spot any of these signs then it’s probably a
    good time to call in the professionals to restore
    your roof.
