Saving blue whales from ship-strike in the Indian Ocean!

Weligama, Sri Lanka
My mission is to reduce blue whale death by ship-strike in the Indian Ocean. I want to use standard survey methods to verify habitat models that tell us where the whales are most at risk from ships, add photos to our Sri Lankan Photo-ID catalog that will enable us to estimate numbers of whales in this unique population, use an OpenROV to investigate areas where whales spend time to see what they might be doing at depth and to see what other species they may interact with, and take all of you - to the mystical Indian Ocean!
