Discover how scientists study gray whales, how they know there were more calves this year and more in this exciting virtual reseach mission. SEABLAST: Congratulations to Dr. Tamara Frank, deep sea researcher, marine biologist at Nova Southeastern University, and WhaleTimes' Board Member. Dr. Frank's latest research, published in the Journal of Experimental Biology, has been picked up by media outlets all over the world, from Science Magazine, Science Daily, Fox News, Smithsonian, BBC and more! Deep-sea research is so important, it's great to know more people are discovering it through this exciting research. Way to go Dr. Frank!
