2001 - Humpback Whale Research Expedition in Gustavus, Alaska

Gustavus is a little town at the mouth of the Glacier Bay National Park, in southeast Alaska. Its also a summer home to hundreds of Humpback whales who migrate to Alaska from Hawaii to forage for food.

On this expedition, all of our research was shore based. The Humpbacks were everywhere including up close to shore and so we chose to conduct our research from camp sites we set up along their foraging areas.
