Our guest this week, Dawn Barlow, a first-year PhD student in Fisheries and Wildlife, speaks with us about a newly discovered population of blue whales living off the coasts of New Zealand. Unfortunately, their year-round home is near a highly industrialized area where shipping and oil and gas drilling occurs. Can a management plan be drawn to balance industry with conservation? It depends on where the whales spend their time, and that depends on krill distributions and oceanographic conditions.
