BAJA, Mexico (Nov. 17, 2020) A researcher from the U.S. Navy's Naval Information Warfare Center Pacific, in collaboration with other scientists from the U.S. and Mexico, have potentially discovered a new beaked whale species off the coast of Baja, Mexico. Naval Sea Systems Command funded the expedition which originally set out to determine the source of a unique beaked whale vocalization recorded near a Navy test area in southern California, thought to have come from a Perrin's beaked whale. The expedition instead found this potentially new species with its own unique vocalization and potential distribution into southern California waters. The U.S. Navy is committed to supporting our Sailors while also protecting our natural environment. (U.S. Navy courtesy photo)
