IWDG Whale Track

WhaleTrack Ireland ​is an exciting new project, which aims to determine what large baleen whales are doing in Irish waters, where are they coming from and going to. This project engages with citizen scientists, described as “​the collection of data relating to the natural world by members of the general public, typically as part of a collaborative project with professional scientists​”. IWDG have been encouraging and working with citizen scientists for decades.

Initially ​WhaleTrack Ireland​ will focus on humpback whales but we hope to expand it in the future to fin and hopefully blue whales.
