Search: Fabrice Schnöller is a scientist fascinated by marine mammals. He studies the behavioural acoustics of dolphins, whales, and sperm whales in the seas off the island of La Réunion, where he is based. He has developed new technologies, such as 3D acoustic cameras, etho-acoustic analysis software, and high-definition 3D acoustic recording devices. His goal is to connect clicks with behaviour, in order to understand how cetaceans communicate. This is one part of a trilogy.
