The Whale Carbon Plus Project
The Whale Carbon Plus Project (WCPP) brings together diverse ocean stakeholders to develop scalable, replicable methods to incentivize the monitoring and protection of whales.
“Increasing the world’s whale populations is a win-win strategy to capture more carbon from the atmosphere and improve ocean health. However, for whale protection measures to be adopted on a global scale, we need to incentivize businesses and other stakeholders to take whale-healthy actions by proving the benefits of protecting whales far exceed the cost. By using ethical AI we aim to set not only a high technical standard for whale detection, but also an ethical one.”
