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!

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.
