Photographic identification is the most convenient and non-invasive tool to learn bout the different types of whales in the ocean. The factors such as the high mobility of almost every species in the ocean and the large proportion of migration done by whales make it difficult to study them.
The short stay of animals in one area makes it challenging to keep track of them. The easy way to distinguish between different types of species is via their physical appearance. For example, dolphins and whales have very different physical appearances and are easy to recognize.
