Dear Colleagues,
I would like to share with you our latest publication entitled "Occurrence
and anthropogenic-derived mortality of humpback whales (Megaptera
novaeangliae) along the northern coast of Argentina, 2003–2021".
Feel free to contact us for any copy
Best regards


Sightings and strandings of humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) along
the coast of Buenos Aires Province in Argentina were once sporadic but have
increased by up to 640% since 2018. Here, we assess the trends and
seasonality of occurrence and anthropogenic-derived mortality in this
population between 2003 and 2021. Most of the humpback whales found dead
were young animals, and 27% of the stranded whales showed signs of
anthropogenic interactions. The information collected from Buenos Aires
Province over the past two decades clearly indicates that humpback whales
are becoming more frequent and growing in numbers along the Argentinean
coast. For their protection, governmental regulations need to be
implemented as soon as possible.
