Humpback whales tracked by social media scientists

By August 14, 2019

Results from a new study exploring the travel history of a humpback whale have revealed that UK seas act as a ‘service station’ for migrating humpback whales. Volunteers involved in the study used photos shared on social media to reveal the travel history of a humpback whale, nicknamed “vYking” by local whale watchers, which spent last winter near Fife and Edinburgh. Sightings of humpback whales in UK seas are increasing year on year, with the Firth of Forth in southeast Scotland emerging as a winter hotspot for these ocean giants.
