Traffic Separation Scheme: The blue lines show ships that entered or left the Gulf of Panama between Aug. 21 and Sept. 19, 2009. Colored lines show the tracks of 12 tagged whales during the same period. In the new scheme, boats would all enter via the yellow area. (Image courtesy Smithsonian Tropical research Institute)
