ECOPredS would not exist without the support from the project partners and collaborators who have generously shared their data and expertise with the project. We are also grateful to the project’s funders, including Marine Scotland Science (MSS), Scottish Natural Heritage and Carnegie Trust (more details on the funding page).
Hugh Harrop, Karen Hall and the many volunteer contributors to Shetland Orca Sightings
Northern Lighthouse Board kindly allowed us to deploy acoustic recorders on their navigation buoys in Scapa Flow, Orkney, in 2019.
ECOPredS interacts and coordinates with other researchers and ongoing projects on North Atlantic killer whales, including Icelandic Orca project led by Dr Filipa Samarra, UK killer whale photo-id work led by Dr Andy Foote, and Eve Jourdain from the Norwegian Orca Survey.
We are also grateful to all researchers and engingeers in SMRU for advice and help with the project, and Dr Debbie Russell, Dr Dave Thompson, Dr Bernie McConnell, and Prof Ailsa Hall for sharing their seal telemetry data.
