Strathkinness Cubs measure a minke


Researchers from SMRU (Debbie Russell) and CREEM (Catriona Harris) spent an evening with Strathkinness Cub Scouts helping them work towards their Scientist Badge. 
 
There was lots of fun with whale and seal skulls, whale sounds, identifying individuals with the SMRU photo-ID matching game and seeing how big a minke whale really is. 
 
We also played some games demonstrating noise pollution and learnt how hard it can be for animals to communicate when humans are so noisy!
