MINKE WHALES TAGGED AND TRACKED IN WORLD FIRST

Four dwarf minke whales (Balaenoptera acutorostrata) have been tagged and tracked for the first time ever in an attempt to solve the mystery of where they go after wintering in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Very little is known about the whales, which grow to 5-7m in length. This project hopes to shed light on the behaviour of the beautiful, mysterious creatures.
