Hello everyone, I hope that you have all had a great winter. I don’t know about you but I am ready for spring to really arrive (and STAY) and then for our 2011 whale watching season to begin! Nick, Jolinne and myself are all back as your naturalists and we are itching to get back on the water of the Bay of Fundy.
– Names can not be gender specific….so even if you think of a name like “Daisy” because you see a flower patter on the tail that name will not be choosen because it is also a female’s name.
– Must be for a mark on the tail (sometimes the dorsal fin or the trailing edge of the fluke) and not a specific event related to the whale.
– No brand names aloud…humpbacks will not be used for advertising
– the names should be short and one word
There was another unknown whale that we did see in 2010 but as I mentioned in a previous post this whale washed up dead on the shore of Brier Island in December of 2010 so this young whale will not be given a name but will be given an official number in the catalog which I will share with you when I can.
