Join Ruth Coxon to learn about the endangered fin whale. Hear how her research can help these majestic animals.
Fin whales are the second largest animals on the planet, but their size and limited manoeuvrability makes them especially vulnerable to being struck by ships. Thanks to Ruth's recent research in the Bay of Biscay, we now have a clearer idea of how whales are affected by our busy shipping lanes and what we can do to help them.
Nature Live is your chance to meet our scientists and find out more about some of the important research being conducted to save our endangered species.
