After a glorious summer spent in the Antarctic, the whales of the southern hemisphere are heading our way, including Humpbacks and Southern Rights, to our temperate waters to mate and give birth to their young.
Spotting one of these graceful creatures in the wild is a truly memorable experience. Each year thousands of visitors flock to our southern coast for the chance to glimpse the whales. Thanks to spotting volunteers the South Australian Whale Centre (SAWC) is able to guide visitors to the best locations to see the magic of whales breathing (blowing), breaching, and tail slapping.
The SAWC is seeking previous and new trainee spotters with a focus on identifying only those whale and dolphin species that frequent our local waters. There will be a training session on Wednesday, April 17 from 4-6pm at the SAWC, 2 Railway Tce, Victor Harbor. Please RSVP to:
or: 08 8551 0750.
No prior experience is needed for new volunteers. The only requirement is a willingness to enjoy and appreciate our incredible backyard and the creatures who share it with us.
