The American Cetacean Society (ACS) is excited to announce the issue of our
Whalewatcher publication: “Breaking the Surface: women of cetology”!
This is the first publication ever to center on women in cetology. The
special edition includes articles written by highly acclaimed cetacean
scientists detailing their trials, triumphs, and incredible adventures
throughout their careers studying the lives of cetaceans. Authors have also
provided advice for students pursuing careers in this field. This
collection of articles highlight contemporary scientists who are defining
the field today while also delving into the history of early pioneer women
scientists whose work was foundational for cetacean science. The
publication aims to inspire the next generation of scientists, naturalists,
and conservationists while enlightening readers on how far women have come
in the field and discussing the path forward.

Featured articles are written by Jo Marie Acebes, Lisa Balance, Denise
Herzing, Ellen Hines, Christina Lockyer, Janet Mann, Lori Marino, Yoko
