Wildlife Conservation Society Final Report:
New York Cetaceans

The outcome of a workshop convened by WCS and the Hudson River Foundation in 2016 identified the area in and around the Lower and Upper Bay of the New York Harbor as a significant cetacean activity knowledge gap. In response to the pressing need for baseline information on cetaceans in this data poor area, a Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) project was implemented in 2018 with the aim to fill some of these important knowledge gaps.

The results from this project provide an important start to generating a series of baseline information on species seasonal presence and the ambient noise environment to which they are subjected.
