On IndividuWhale.com, which was funded partly by Oregon Sea Grant, people can meet:
🐳 Buttons, who has been issued an honorary library card by the Port Orford Public Library.
🐳 Solé, who can be spotted at her favorite foraging ground she returns to each year.
🐳 Scarlett (shown here), who has a large scar on her back and has been observed in the Pacific Northwest since 1996.
🐳 Six other "whale-known" cetaceans.
After reading about the whales, people can try their hand at identifying them through photos. They can also learn about how researchers use photos, drones and p**p samples to study whales; why kelp forests are important to gray whales; and what stresses whales out.
