Mark & Debbie Ferrari The goal of our research is to understand the critical biological parameters, life history, distribution & other critical factors affecting the survival of this endangered species. The CWS believes that benign ornoninvasive observation techniques provide the only true acceptable means for studying living whales in their natural environment. We educate & inform the general public and the decision makers who can implement the necessary measures to ensure this species survival. MARINE MAMMAL RESEARCH CONSULTANTS, LTD Whale Trust studies the communication, behavior and social organization of humpback whales. Two primary projects in Maui are the investigation of the humpback whale song led by Dr. Jim Darling, and a study of female mating strategies in humpback whales led by Dr. Meagan Jones.
