The Little Boat That Could…

Our amazing boat getting ready for a pop-up mission

It’s amazing what you can accomplish from a little boat! Here’s a photo of Rob preparing a pop-up hydrophone (a microphone that listens underwater) for deployment.   Our colleagues at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology invented these amazing hydrophones that sit on the sea-bed and record all the sounds in the ocean including whales, dolphins and ships.  Click here for one of our Pacific white-sided dolphin calls.  We have now deployed 12 along the coast of British Columbia and have successfully retrieved every single one! Learn more about this project and our Quiet Ocean Campaign.

This month, we are taking part in the August Break and posting one photo each day for the whole month.
