Today we found the first Humpback whale of the year! How exciting! Finally a gentle giant graces us with it's precence - a spotting we had been waiting a very long time for..
With our ongoing research on board we were able to compare photographs from past sightings to see if we knew this particular whale. By (at least) triple checking our data, we came to the conclusion that this must be a new individual, or one we had not encountered prior. Since all whales in our catalogue have names, we thought it only fitting to name it after it's discoverer, our fantastic naturalist Tess. Read more about our research here: https://elding.is/research
