Photo by @BrianSkerry | Three sperm whales socialize in the waters off of Dominica in the eastern Caribbean. The whale on the bottom is a calf is named Digit, and she became entangled in fishing gear in 2015. It was looking like a death sentence for the young whale, but surprisingly in 2018 Digit was completely free! These whales have been studied for 15 years by Shane Gero, founder of the the Dominica Sperm Whale Project. In a story on the @natgeo website @craigwelch writes about Shane’s work with these animals, their families, and this special story. This population of whales is on a six percent annual decline due to anthropogenic stresses, such as entanglement in fishing gear and ship strikes. If they die off, we would lose a whale culture that possesses unique knowledge about its home waters.
