Whale Cameras – level 3

22-07-2021 15:00

People can see minke and humpback whales in an amazing new way with an ingenious filming technique: researchers attached cameras onto the whales.

By using suction cups, the researchers attached digital tags to the whales’ backs, and the digital tags have sensors and a camera.

The researchers hope that the tags will bring information on the whales’ feeding areas in Antarctica and bring them more protection, as well as give a rare glimpse into their world.

Difficult words: minke whale (a type of whale), ingenious (very clever), suction cup (a device that sticks very well onto something else), digital tag (an electronic device that collects information), sensor (a thing that records information), glimpse (a short look).
