Abstract

Researchers, including marine biologist Scott Kraus, are using the "Whale House" in Lubec to monitor endangered North Atlantic right whales that gather each summer in the Bay of Fundy. A project of the New England Aquarium and one of the longest running whale research projects in the world, the study was started 30 years ago in response to a proposed oil refinery in Eastport. This summer there are 14 researchers staying at the house, ranging in age from 24 to 56. Federal funding for right whale research was halved under the Bush administration and has yet to rebound. With details of research done aboard ship and on the land.
