Individual whales

The citizen-science project I chose to do was for, and my job was identifying individual Humpback Whales by describing the patterns on their tails, this is was helpful because in filing the patterns on the tails, I was able to help guide their computer algorithms match new whales to whales that have existed longer. This was an a beneficial task for the science community along with Zooniverse, because in identifying individual tails scientists can better understand their behavior, population trends, personalities, and their conservation issues. I learned the importance of individual whale tails and their significance to the science community by identifying these tails.
