What role can gliders play in saving the whales? Marine Tech Talk host Melissa Rossi welcomes onto the show Jude van der Meer, a Glider Technician with Dalhousie University in Halifax Nova Scotia to discuss how his work can make a difference in the world's oceans.

Jude serves on the Coastal Environmental Observation Technology and Research team (CEOTR) and works with Dalhousie's fleet of gliders that are used for whale monitoring, predominantly in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence and the Roseway Basin.
