Hey everyone :)
I hope that you have all had a great winter and that spring and sprung in your hometown. I wanted to share with you all that the Gulf of Maine Humpback Naming is well under way and Round 1 is now over and I have had the privilege to name 5 whales during this round. The round included "unknown whales" but not the whales that we saw during our 2009 season. The whales in the Bay of Fundy belong to a much larger group of North Atlantic humpbacks that spend their feeding season in the Gulf of Maine.
Below are the 5 whales that I got to name during Round 1
I will keep you posted as the naming continues and let you know when the 7 whales from our 2009 season get their new names .
Our whale watching season officially begins on June 26th but if you are in St. Andrews before the end of June and you want to get out on the Bay check out Fundy Tide Runners, the are running nature cruises and seeing lots of seals, porpoise and eagles and even though it's a little early for whales you never know when the first sighting will be.
