Migaloo On Northern Migration

By Mark Beale

Perphaps the worlds most famous whale, Migaloo appears to be making his way north.

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service rangers aboard a Marine Parks vessel yesterday escorted the white whale past Moreton Island.

Rangers first thought the whale too small to be Migaloo, but have since confirmed the sighting after comparing photos taken yesterday with those taken in 2003.

National media has also reported a sighting off Byron Bay at around 10am on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, a Facebook page dedicated to tracking the national icon is claiming to have confirmed sightings off the Gold Coast later in the day on Tuesday.

Rolling posts on the page appear to show Migaloo migrating north along Australia’s east coast, with sightings off Port Stephens, Port Macquarie and Iluka in the past fortnight.

While many are undoubtedly hoping to catch sight of the real life Moby Dick, would be whale-watchers are being warned to keep their distance with a $609 on-the-spot fine for getting too close.
