Marine biologists working with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society believe that they have discovered a previously unknown species of beaked whale in the waters north of Mexico’s San Benito Islands.

A team of researchers on board Sea Shepherd vessel Martin Sheen aimed to study the cetaceans present in the waters surrounding San Benito Islands, a group of three remote islands located approximately 483 km (300 miles) from the U.S. border.

The scientists set forth to identify a beaked whale species associated with an unidentified acoustic signal previously recorded in the area.

On November 17, 2020, they observed three beaked whales about 161 km (100 miles) north of San Benito Islands.

They captured photographs and video recordings of the animals and deployed a specialized underwater microphone to record the acoustic signals emitted by the whales.

Sea Shepherd Captures NEVER SEEN BEFORE drone footage of the rare Cuvier's Beaked Whales (Ziphius cavirostris) while conducting research on Mexico's Guadalupe Island.

This is the first ever footage of a mother and calf pair of this species.
