Support of Graduate Students

As part of our mission to EDUCATE, the Wild Whale Research Foundation works with graduate students focusing on the study of marine mammals. The WWRF has been supporting research at two universities by providing photos for long-term studies:

  • Hawaii Pacific University – Jessica Aschettino, who recently completed her Master’s of Science on melon-headed whale population size and population structure
  • Portland State University – Sabre Mahaffy, who is working on her Master’s of Science on short-finned pilot whale social organization
