Chile: Whales dying because of ship collisions

Scientists in Chile are trying to stop ships from hitting whales.

Commercial shipping is the leading cause of death among whales in Chile’s waters.

A new technology called LIDO (Listening to the Deep Ocean), can pinpoint whales’ locations and send a satellite message in real time to Chile’s navy, which in turn alerts nearby ships.

Al Jazeera’s Latin America Editor Lucia Newman reports from Santiago, Chile.
