SOUTH­ERN RIGHT WHALES CALV­ING, HEAD OF BIGHT

Australian Geographic - - Wild Australia -

Aus­tralian south­ern right whales mate and calve in the shal­low wa­ters of the bays along the Great Aus­tralian Bight, with about a third of these whales begin­ning their lives here. July–Au­gust is the best time to spot these up-to-70-tonne mam­mals, par­tic­u­larly from the high cliffs of the Head of Bight look­out, where many moth­ers and calves can be spot­ted, of­ten within 100m of the coast.
