EDC 101 The Oceania Project

Who are they and what do they do?
Established in 1988 by founders Trish and Wally Franklin.
They are a not for profit, research and information organisation based in Hervey Bay that was established to raise awareness about Cetacea (Whales, Dolphins, & Porpoises) and the ocean environment.
The Oceania Project's Research Programs
1. Long term photo-identification survey of the Humpback whales in Hervey Bay.
This enables them to study their behaviour, social organisation and population dynamics.
2. Integration of photo-identification & genetic data with Southern Cross University and collaboration with Professor Peter Baverstock, Southern Cross University and Megan Anderson, PhD Candidate, Southern Cross University.
3. Photo-identification collaboration with Members of the South Pacific Whale Research Consortium
5. A whale Habitat Monitoring Project with the Queensland Environment Protection Agency.
The Oceania Project's Annual Whale Research Expedition
This was their major project that ran for 24 years from 1989 to 2013.
It provided the platform for their current long-term research program on the Humpback whales in Hervey Bay.
