CARIB Tails enlists yachters and cruisers to help track the movements of our shared humpback whales between their North Atlantic feeding grounds in Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary (Cape Cod, MA) and their breeding grounds in the Wider Caribbean Region. Your contributions of tail fluke photographs of humpback whales from the Caribbean region are critical for conservation efforts.
