Satellites help spot whales
Scientists have demonstrated how new satellite technology can be used to count whales, and ultimately estimate their population size. Using Very High Resolution (VHR) satellite imagery, alongside image processing software, they were able to automatically detect and count whales breeding in part of the Golfo Nuevo, Peninsula Valdes in Argentina.

A changing climate will make species homeless
The survival of all species on land and sea depends on them living within a set range of temperatures, but local climates are shifting. Species have to adapt, or move, or face extinction.
In a new study published today, a team of international scientists shows how fast and in which direction local climates have already shifted. This is important for anticipating the future. The research also highlights vulnerable areas, which will help focus conservation efforts.
