Dear Cetacean-Loving Friends,
It’s happened again! Another member of Birdsong and the Eco-Wonders encountered a blue whale off the coasts of Dana Point and Laguna Beach in southern California. This time it was Dr. Marcie and she took a great video of this whale’s dive, fluke and all. If you look closely, you will see some white scarring on the whale’s tail. This is possibly a scar from a cut by a fishing line that got wrapped around this whale’s tail. Fortunately, this huge, beautiful whale survived that injury and now whale researchers and captains use that scar to identify this whale. Some have even nicknamed the whale “Scar”. Check out this video, my friends!
