In the meantime or lower-tech Judie Clee has made two more matches of our whales from this season. Our 0449 below left photographed on 15th of April 2006 is NAHWC#7050 first photographed in 1991 in Newfoundland. She has also matched our 0616 below right photographed on 15th April 2011 to to NAHWC#7054 also photographed first in Newfoundland in 1991. We have made 9 matches to Newfoundland whales already this season.

Two different ways of 'tagging' animals. One is based on high tech GPS, the other is rather more dependent on grunt work.
