I wanted to announce my absence, much unlike my very hectic departure to Romania. The author is currently in the Gulf of Mexico from July 5-22 to work on sperm whale surveys in the Gulf of Mexico. This work is with the Marine Mammal Institute of Oregon State University, my place of employment. We'll be looking at animal movement and behavior as a follow up to the Deepwater Horizon Oilspill.

Hopefully we can find out more about these amazing creatures!
Don't despair in the meantime... I have scheduled several posts to go out in my absence, however I may be delayed in relating real-time news and findings for these 2 weeks.
