Dr. Sharpe (File No. 19703) proposes to study humpback and killer (Orcinus orca) whales in Alaska using both vessel and aerial surveys and a variety of methods including photo-identification, passive and active acoustics, underwater video/photography, unmanned aircraft systems, prey mapping, and suction-cup tagging. The purpose of the research is to continue a long-term study of the behavior of Alaskan humpback whales, focusing on social structure, vocalizations, and feeding. Forty harbor porpoises (Phocoena phocoena), 50 Dall’s porpoises (Phocoenoides dalli), 130 harbor seals (Phoca vitulina), and 80 Steller sea lions (Eumetopias jubatus) may be incidentally harassed during research activities. The permit would be valid for five years. Mr. Cilfone (File No. 20993) proposes to film humpback whales in Hawaiian waters of the Maui Nui Basin. Footage would be used to create a film about humpback whales and their conservation success that would be available on multiple platforms. Boats, unmanned aircraft systems, pole cameras, and snorkelers would all be used to get footage. Fifty humpback whales would be approached annually. In addition, pantropical spotted (Stenella attenuata), spinner (S. longirostris), and bottlenose (Tursiops truncatus) dolphins may be incidentally harassed during filming operations. Filming would occur in winter and spring and the permit would be valid until May 2017.
