Tracks of the Tohorā

In August 2020, researchers from the University of Auckland and Cawthron Institute, in collaboration with the Australian Antarctic Division and the US National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, put satellite tags on six southern right whales – tohorā. As of June 2021, two whale’s tags (Bill/Wiremu and Tahi) are still transmitting. You can see images of the whales and animations of their tracks here.
