Luminary Lectures at the Library - Whales in the City: Humpback whale resting and calving on the Gold Coast

  • -

Humpback whales face many challenges during their migration. The Gold Coast bay is one of the few resting, socialising and emerging calving grounds for humpback whales.

Humpbacks and High-rises is a community based not-for profit organisation established in 2011. They have monitored humpback whales for almost 10 years and now run South East Queensland’s largest marine mammal monitoring program.

Join Humpbacks and High-rises founder and marine biologist, Dr Olaf Meynecke from Griffith University, as he shares his research and fascinating stories about these magnificent creatures.

This event is part of the Gold Coast Libraries 'Science of the Sea' program. Don't forget to explore our recommended National Science Week reading list.
