Earthquake monitors could protect fin whales

Researchers at the University of Washington are to use sensors placed on the seabed to monitor and protect endangered fin whales from being killed or injured in collisions with boats.

The sensors, which are designed to detect earthquakes, are able to also track the low-pitch frequency call of fin whales. By locating the birthing places of fin whales and their patterns of movement, researchers hope that ships could avoid certain regions at certain times to prevent future fatal injury to these huge creatures.
