Using anti-nuclear technology to find new blue whale pods | Tracey Rogers | TEDxSydney
by TEDx Talks I3:44 pm, 11th February
Listening devices exist all over the world, on land and in the deep ocean, installed by the UN to deter nations from testing nuclear weapons. Ecologist Tracey Rogers and her team found another use for this technology, and discovered two new blue whale pods in the process.
Tracey Rogers is an ecologist who studies how animals overcome the challenges of changing environments. Her research examines how whale populations have recouped from 20th century hunting and how they now deal with warming oceans; how pack ice seals cope with the loss of ice and krill in the Antarctic; how Tasmanian devils cope with extreme population loss because of a facial tumour; and whether new techniques can help humans live in harmony with wildlife. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
