Alex is currently working on illustrations for the Goldbogen Lab, who use data generated by digital tags to understand the complex lunge-feeding action of rorqual whales. More to come!


Lemon-lime Froback Whale Tag

Manufactured by Customized Animal Tracking Solutions (CATS), this tag is stuck onto a whale with suction cups, deployed from a small boat with a 20-ft pole. With HD video recording, and sensors for light, acceleration, pressure, direction, gyroscope, and more, these tags are revolutionizing how scientists can study elusive animals like whales.
