  1. UPDATE, Feb. 23

    By Thursday morning, J pod had moved farther out into the ocean, then south along the Washington Coast. The map on this page updates their progress to 9 a.m. Thursday.

  2. The satellite tag on J-26 transmitted for 3 days and then stopped transmitting on Feb. 23rd. Since it was successful for 3 days is it considered 1 of the 6 tags allowed and now they have only 5 left?

    ‘Fell off’ ‘stopped transmitting’ lots of implications to those phrases.

    How much is all this costing the U.S. taxpayer?

  3. :
    As noted on the web page:

    “Transmissions from the tag have not been obtained since the morning of February 23rd, probably due to loss of the tag or possibly due to a failure of the transmitter. The researchers will continue to visually and acoustically monitor the whales, and we will continue to post updated information as it becomes available.”

    I will try to obtain more information from the researchers, but they are often out of cell phone range.
