Marine animals spend most or all of their time underwater and are hidden from view. Over the last two decades, the development of new technologies to track and monitor these animals has created a "data deluge" and revolutionized our understanding of their movements and behaviors. Join us as Dr. Bailey discusses where, why and when fish, sea turtles, whales, and dolphins undergo migrations and how this could change in the future.
