This phenomenal photo by Rob Mulally was taken yesterday 17 May – it shows a whale that came into Manly Cove on its migration to warmer waters. Each year from May to November, about 30,000 humpback and southern right whales make their way from the Antarctic.
This video captured by Manly local Tracy Black shows the whale in Manly Cove during the day on 17 May.
Remember to contact ORRCA if you see a whale in trouble. Check out our interview with ORRCA vice president Jools Farrell.
