In August 2020 and July 2021, researchers from the University of Auckland and Cawthron Institute, in collaboration with the Australian Antarctic Division and the US National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, put satellite tags on southern right whales – tohorā. As of August 2021, one whale’s tags (Bill/Wiremu) from 2020 and eleven from 2021 were transmitting. You can see images of the whales and animations of some of their tracks here.
