Oh dear, best to put your flak jacket on, the PC folks will have you for dinner, well done. If I had written that they would be screaming "RACIST" at the top of their lungs.

(Sorry, OP. I'm really not making light of your fears. We all have them.)

I just saw this, too. It loads automatically in my browser and it also shows wind and current direction. Very cool app, but it depicts the whales moving at some ridiculously fast clip. No scale provided. That's a lot of tags, as well....and a lot of whales to bug while getting them to stick. Hope they're collecting good data.
