    If the whale’s have names it would sure be nice if the app could show the name…at least for whale’s that have been tagged. I imagine if I were a ship captain and I saw that I was about to run into a whale named, say, Eustace and that if I did there would no longer be a whale named Eustace and whoever named him Eustace would find out that Eustace was no more….I’d probably be more likely to take inconvenient steps to avoid poor Eustace.

    For people who  aren’t usually at sea but like whales and want to help marine researchers, check out  It’s a citizen science initiative in which you get to listen to recordings of whale songs and help researchers categorize them by similarity.
