A talk on the movements of humpback whale migrations across the coast.

Catalogue by Peta Beeman.

Come along to this fascinating talk and learn more about the movements of humpback whales as they migrate up and down our coast. Peta Beeman established the East Coast Whale Watch Catalogue, a research project for her Masters of Science at Southern Cross University.

Peta analyses humpback whale tail fluke photographs from Australian east coast whale watch tour operations. Tail flukes provide a unique fingerprint for each whale, so by analysing thousands of photos, Peta is able to obtain information on movement patterns, travel speeds, and migration timing.
