Blue Whale Study is a charitable organisation conducting ecological research and education to promote understanding and conservation of endangered blue whales (Balaenoptera musculus) and their feeding habitat in southern Australian waters.
Since 1998 the Blue Whale Study has been investigating the ecology of blue whales, the largest animal on Earth, in their feeding habitat in biologically rich upwelling waters off south-west Victoria and south-east South Australia. The Blue Whale Study, founded by whale ecologist Dr Pete Gill, has unraveled and described the fundamental ecological links underlying the presence of blue whales in this feeding area.
