Audio recordings of humpback whales

In the Summer 2013 article “Whale song” Larry Pynn reveals that there is a growing network of hydrophones operating in British Columbia, from south of Vancouver Island all the way up the north coast. The underwater listening devices are, in part, giving scientists a better understanding of how marine noises might impact whales and other mammals.
