Abstract

I propose to increase the amount of validated photographic data available on humpback whales in Southeast Alaska through a significant outreach effort to educate Alaska residents, tourists, and companies involved in the tourism industry (specifically fishing, sightseeing, and whale watching charters). To demonstrate clear “thought leadership” by developing innovative ways to collect scientific data that will significantly enhance the ability of scientists in Juneau and around the world to learn about whale behavior in Southeast Alaska and elsewhere.
