Howard Rosenbaum
Ocean Giants Director Dr. Howard Rosenbaum directs the Wildlife Conservation Society's Ocean Giants Program, which aims to secure the future of whales, dolphins, sea turtles, and sharks. With a diverse field staff throughout the world's major oceans, Dr. Rosenbaum's conservation programs have helped save wildlife and wild places through innovative research and implementation of unique conservation strategies. Dr. Rosenbaum is also a Senior Scientist at the American Museum of Natural History, an adjunct faculty member at New York University and Columbia University, and a member of the United States delegation to the International Whaling Commission, the IUCN Cetacean Specialist Group, and has been an Associate Editor for the journal Marine Mammal Science. For more than 25 years, Dr. Rosenbaum's work has focused on innovative conservation science for protecting endangered whales and dolphins. In the 1990's, Howard initiated WCS's work on whale and dolphin populations off the coasts of Madagascar and Gabon; these projects have grown significantly in both in species and regional importance, and are addressing current and emerging threats to these iconic marine species and their important biologically important habitats Dr. Rosenbaum received his Ph.D. in biology from Yale University and has been involved in marine mammal research involving the ecology habitat-use, behavior, genetics, and conservation of a number of whale and dolphin species, the development of innovative marine mammal research techniques, and assessment of potential antropogenic impacts to cetacean populations.

The Team

Dr. Howard Rosenbaum is a geneticist working with the Wildlife Conservation Society and the American Natural History Museum in New York.He coordinates and actively participates in humpback whale research throughout the Indian Ocean and the West Coast of Africa, and conducts the genetic analysis of humpback whale, humpback dolphin, and Bryde's whale tissue sample from Oman.

"Humpback whales are perhaps the most studied species of great whale in the Northern Hemisphere, but many of the interactions among Southern Hemisphere populations are still poorly understood," said Dr. Howard Rosenbaum, Director of the Wildlife Conservation Society's Ocean Giants Program and lead author of the study.
On an interesting historical note, Rosenbaum and his co-authors used old whaling records to guide their research on whale populations. "Townsend was attempting to identify distribution and possible boundaries between whale populations or 'breeding stocks,'" noted Rosenbaum. Molecular technology gives us a window into the lives of whales that can help us understand the ecological forces shaping their movements and distribution," added Rosenbaum.

The authors of the study include: Anita Murray, formerly of the Wildlife Conservation Society and Columbia University ; Salvatore Cerchio, Yvette Razafindrakoto, and Howard Rosenbaum of the Wildlife Conservation Society; Robert McCauley of Curtin University, Perth, Australia; Curt S. Jenner of the Centre for Whale Research, Fremantle, Australia; Douglas Coughran of the Department of Environment and Conservation, Perth, Australia; and Shannon McKay of the School of Life and Environmental Science, Warrnambool, Australia.
Dr. Howard Rosenbaum, Director of WCS's Ocean Giants Program said: "These song comparisons complement our findings based on other methods, such as those from genetic analysis, to understand how whale populations interact with one another.


Rob DeSalle, Course Author

One of the most satisfying of his many collaborations was a study with Dr. Howard Rosenbaum of the Wildlife Conservation Society, which allowed him to fulfill his youthful ambition to study whales.
During the great whale hunts of the 19th century, one of the most severely depleted species was the right whale. It was easy to catch because it skims the surface while feeding and its body floats after death, making it the "right" whale to hunt. Right whales live in the South Pacific, the North Pacific, and the North Atlantic, and traditionally the northern and southern groups had been considered two different species. Rob, Dr. Rosenbaum, and an international team of cetacean biologists analyzed DNA from animals in each group and found that the two northern groups are genetically different.
