Blake Moore, talks about Pacific Whale Foundation
A talk with Blake Moore about the eco-programs at PWF. Pacific Whale Foundation’s Ocean Explorer spotted the first whale sighting of the season on October 8, 2018 at 8:08 AM, 2.4 miles North of Molokini heading towards Maalaea Harbor. T
At least 12,000 humpback whales are believed to migrate to Hawaii each winter, with their rate increasing at 7% per year. They travel from their northern summer feeding area that extends from Northern California to the Bering Sea, arriving in Hawaii to mate, give birth and care for their young calves. Humpback whales are protected by federal and state regulations, which prohibit vessels and other water-users from approaching humpback whales within 100 yards. More information on responsible whalewatching is available through Pacific Whale Foundation’s Be Whale Aware guidelines through pacificwhale.org.
