Research is at the core of everything we do at Alaska Whale Foundation. Since the 1980s, members of AWF have been conducting marine mammal research using a variety of tools including sonars, animal-borne tags (Crittercam), acoustic recording devices, theodolites and both video and still cameras. Learn more about the various projects we are currently working on.
AWF is in an excellent position as a conservation and research foundation to inform others of the state of these whales. From our conservation-directed research programs to our participation in the Alaska Marine Mammal Stranding Network, we are working to ensure the future of these magnificent animals remains bright. Learn more about our conservation efforts.
One of the best ways to aid in the conservation of marine mammals is by educating - and inspiring – people. AWF has been reaching out to local communities, tourism and fishing industries, and the general public by conducting local, regional and national presentations, participating in television and film productions, and producing educational literature.
