Shelby Vance is working on curating and maintaining the Right Whale Photo-Identification Catalog and assessing each whale for anthropogenic scarring events. She first came to the NEAq in 2016 as a volunteer angler for a groundfish study and, since then, has studied climate change and sharks, sampled tuna, and practiced outreach to the general public.
