A ‘baby boom’ in west coast wa­ters

The Oban Times - - News -

SIGHT­INGS of young whales and dol­phins off the West Coast are at the high­est ever recorded.

He­bridean Whale and Dol­phin Trust said the num­ber of ju­ve­nile minke whales spot­ted this year is larger than ever be­fore, either in­di­cat­ing a baby boom or an in­flux from else­where. Re­search also showed the num­ber of com­mon dol­phin sight­ings has more than dou­bled over the last 12 years, but the rea­sons are ‘un­clear’.
