New Humpback whale to the area confirmed from our sighting on June 20th ~

The humpback whale that we observed on June 20th has been confirmed by Jackie as being new into the area and has been documented as BCYuk2014#3. Having been the first to see and photograph this whale we have been given the opportunity to nickname it and have chosen the name ‘Donegal’ after the land mark of Donegal Head (SE side on Malcolm Island) where we first observed the whale swimming. It was exciting for us and also for the Marine Education and Research Society (MERS) http://www.mersociety.orgIMG_3727 IMG_3728
