Even with thorough coverage (by 3 research vessels: Nereid, Callisto and Selkie) in calm seas only seven whales were photo’d in the two days.  That's quite a

2:15 PM | What the “Call of the Reef” is Telling Us
Coral reefs are in crisis. They are fragile. They are complex. And they are disappearing faster than we are able to understand them.
