I'm shocked to see I haven't blogged for nearly a month - time flies when you're busy re-launching web sites!!
Next week I fly out to our office in the USA. I spent a six-week sabbatical there last year filming humpback whales from whale-watch vessels out of Plymouth. It was an amazing trip and I made a lot of friends, so I'm really excited at the prospect of returning. Cape Cod is a fantastic place to visit if you love whales; out there in the summer, there are literally thousands of humpbacks majestically roaming Stellwagen Bank - plus, fin, Minke, and Right whales. It's literally whale-Mecca.
This time there is much work to be done. As well as re-arranging the NA office, we're re-writing the Humpback Catalogue and Sightings database to collect and sort more information. We're also working on revamping the Whale Adoption Project to be more engaging for supporters and more environmentally responsible. I'll also be doing a little more filming, the products of which I hope you'll see on YouTube very soon. Wish me luck!
