Abstract

Little is known about the Critically Endangered Eastern South Pacific southern right whale. In 2012, the IWC adopted a Conservation Management Plan for this population and in 2016 the Scientific Committee supported a Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) project to facilitate the identification of potential breeding areas along the coast of Chile and Peru. Advances of the PAM project made from May 2017 to April 2018 include selection of deployment sites; selection and acquisition of acoustic devices; building of mooring and other equipment; logistical planning for first location site; permits requirements; education and capacity building planning.
