Southern Cross University's Whale Studies

New research which investigates the migratory movements of humpback whales between Antarctica, the east coast of Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific and the west coast of Australia, has been presented to the International Whaling Commission.

The three reports were prepared by Southern Cross University’s Whale Research Centre using photo-identification catalogues of humpbacks from Hervey Bay, Ballina, New Zealand, Western Australia and Antarctica. The research involved collaboration with scientists from the South Pacific Whale Research Consortium, The Centre for Whale Research, Western Australia, the New Zealand Ministry of Fisheries, The International Fund for Animal Welfare and Greenpeace International.
