Killer Whale Research Aboard National Geographic Explorer

Two killer whale researchers from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are traveling aboard National Geographic Explorer in Antarctica right now. Whenever killer whales are spotted the pair of scientists leaps into a Zodiac with one of our crew to approach them for satellite tagging, photo-identification and biopsy sampling. They’re posting daily updates about their time in Antarctica on NOAA’s website, and our Video Chronicler shot a short piece with them last week.
