Dalhousie PhD student Shane Gero likes to talk to the animals—whales to be exact. And not so much talk as listen.
Recently returned from a seven-week visit to Dominica, Mr. Gero has been travelling to the Caribbean island since 2005 to study families of sperm whales, usually spending two to four months of each year working on the Dominica Sperm Whale Project. One of the goals of this project is to record and compare whale calls over time, examining the various phrases and dialects of sperm whale communities.cont./
