This whale season many people have been enchanted by our whales moving along the Great Ocean Road coast to Warrnambool. Listening to people “ooh” and “ahh” there is no doubt many feel a deep connection.
We can help you download the whale app that shoes you when whales are passing our coast. Grab your binoculars and get ready.
Here’s a story that shows the human animal connection seems to be felt by the whales too.
Michael Fishbach, co-founder of The Great Whale Conservancy (GWC), saved a young humpback whale entangled in local fishing nets off the coast of California.
It took him and friends over an hour to get the net off but at the end the whale surprised and delighted them with a fantastic thank you show.
Go to 6 minutes into the video to see her finally freed and the spectacular thank you show she gives her saviours.
