Sightings of Migaloo off Cape Byron, Tweed and the Gold Coast have induced a frenzy of media actvitiy about his identity. Trish has no doubt its Migaloo from photgraphs of the underside fluke and dorsal fin taken as he passed Byron Bay and Tweed Heads, which match perfectly with her archive of Migaloo photographs.
Such publicity is a postive for the migrating eastern Australian Humpback whales as it provides the oppotunity to inform the Public about them and to reinforce the message of taking care around the migrating whales.
There are plenty of oppotunities to view the migrating Humpbacks so book a Whale Watch tour Now! Naturally we are biased and think the best whale watch location is Hervey Bay!
Over the next three years we will be redeveloping The Oceania Project's website. What we are planning and how you can help with this work is fully explained at Humpback Whales - Spread the Story
Japanese Whalers have returned from Antarctica after illegally killing 333 minke Whales. Japan must leave the International Whaling Commission, see: 'Why Think of Whales at Christmas'.
