Welcome to the fascinating world of whales
Each year, over 35,000 whales migrate past the coastline of the Margaret River Region, meaning that we play host to Australia’s longest whale watching season. Cetacean research in this area was first pioneered by Chris Burton of Western Whale Research (WWR). Chris joins MRBTA for a presentation on the fascinating facts associated with whale migration this in this region.
