“New research helps managers and ship crews predict locations of blue whales so ships can maintain safe distances” Phys.org published an article on July 10, 2019, on how new research can help ship crews predict blue whales locations so these ships can navigate and maintain a safe operating distance from the whales. This research was first published in Diversity and Distributions by Dr. Briana Abrahams, who is a research ecologist at NOAA Fisheries' Southwest Fisheries Science Center. Besides, the movements of over 100- satellite-tagged blue whales to daily oceanographic and related conditions were tracked. The researchers found out that ocean conditions do predictably affect the whales ' travels. This made me think back on my time in the Navy, on a ship out at sea and seeing these amazing creatures swimming alongside us. For this article, I will evaluate and perform an analysis that highlight scientific accuracy on how the problems associated with-in the article may be avoided. Also, compile what possible lessons we can learn from the research performed, which in turn is used to create a healthy future human Ecology. Blue whales are one of the largest animals on planet earth. They can grow well beyond the length of a full basketball court, even though their diet composed primarily of krill (tiny shrimp-like creatures that measure less than two inches in length).
