Location: Hawaii

Humpback Whale #0100, or Ohana, is a female humpback whale observed by PWF researchers in Maui Nui waters on March 6, 2019. During the encounter, Ohana and her calf were seen swimming slowly near the surface of the water. The team was able to successfully launch a drone over the mother-calf pair to collect valuable body measurements of both animals. These body measurements will be used to study the energetic costs for mothers and the growth of calves during their time in Maui Nui region and assess changes in body conditions during the migration between Hawai‘i-Alaska.
