In this Sept. 28, 2014 photo provided by the Wildlife Conservation Society, two humpback whales dive inside what is called the New York Bight, with the New York City skyline in the background. Scientists have deployed a high-tech acoustic buoy in the Bight 22 miles off the coast of New York’s Fire Island to monitor several species of great whales in “near real-time. The high-tech acoustic device will eavesdrop on the songs of the whales to better understand and safeguard their movements near two busy shipping lanes entering New York Harbor.
