Humpback Whales, like all cetaceans are acoustical animals, the dominant sense they engage to relate to each other and the environment is hearing, therefore acoustics play a dominant role in their lives and their life cycles.
Since 1998 we have taken the task to record in high definition the Humpback Whale Songs in Banderas Bay, Mexico and the results of this project have revealed that the role of the song is crucial for reproduction and migration, because of this fact one of the main concerns for whales´ conservation is noise pollution.

We continue to capture acoustical recordings of the Humpback whales’ songs that grace the water of the bay annually analyzing their musical structure and studying its variations over time. You can access our latest contribution at https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-019-42233-7
