A Whale of a Tale: Acoustic Monitoring in the Upper and Lower New York Bay

Presented by: Melinda Rekdahl, PhD., Ocean Giants Program, Wildlife Conservation Society, and Howard Rosenbaum, PhD., Director, Ocean Giants Program,
Wildlife Conservation Society

Sightings of large whales and dolphins have become increasingly common in the New York Bight including in and around the Upper and Lower New York Bay. In order to better understand seasonal presence and habitat-use of cetaceans and levels of Ocean Noise in these nearshore waters, we deployed acoustic recorders over a two-year period in this highly urbanized area. We will discuss some of our findings and the implications for conservation of cetaceans in the Upper and Lower Bay, as well as in the context of current and emerging issues in the wider New York Bight.
