Guess Who

Students investigate some of the technologies used to study and monitor marine wildlife, including devices that enable scientists to listen as well as see living animals and their behaviors. Other devices help in tracking their movements as they forage for food, migrate to other areas, and interact with each other as well as with their predators. Data obtained with these devices provide information on human activities that threaten animal survival. Students discuss how this information can be used to enact and enforce laws to protect marine animals.
