#8: Offshore for two weeks!

Similar to last year, a team of five researchers and Captain Joe have headed offshore on the Shelagh to survey Roseway Basin for right whales. This year, however, the team will be away from the Lubec field station for two weeks! They are hoping to find lots of right whales, and will also be helping Dalhousie University to deploy several acoustic devices that will record underwater noises (hopefully lots of right whale calls!) continuously for days. The Shelagh will be docking at Cape Sable Island, Nova Scotia, to refuel and take refuge during inclement weather. Hopefully the team will return to Lubec with lots of documented right whale sightings, and plenty of fun stories from being at sea!
