Migaloo

Migaloo, the only documented white humpack whale in the world, is drawing a lot of media attention to the Queensland, Australia coastline.

Pacific Whale Foundation is pleased to offer this website as a means to document the activities of this unusual marine mammal, and to monitor the interactions between the whale and curious humans.

Please note that all photographs are copyrighted material.

Pacific Whale Foundation has been following reported sightings of Migaloo, which means "White Fella" in the Aborginal Australian language. Vice President Paul Forestell, who began monitoring Migaloo soon after the whale was first spotted in 1991, helped to coin the name based on advice from an Aboriginal elder.
