GIRAFFE
Giraffe
Photo thanks to the generosity of watsonfoofy
2013 GIRAFFE was seen by Whale Samana and matched by Mandy Houston

~~~~~
Here is Kim Beddalls information:
Giraffe was photographed yesterday the 15th of January at about 12:45 as part of a pair of 13 minute divers in front of Loma de la Pina in Samana Bay. It was very exiting to post the tail and within seconds Joanne responded with Giraffe. This exchange of information makes whale watching a very personal and long lasting experience for visitors here because they were not just watching a whale they were watching an individual personality with a history. Keep up the citizen based science effort it is very much appreciated and 2013 looks like it will be an amazing winter.

WHALE SAMANA
"We saw Whisk and her baby again, right between Cayo Levantado and the coastline. 2 illegal boats were very close to her. After the boats left she and her calf were very cool. We had first seen her this year on January 17th. We're very glad to see they're both still here in the bay of Samana and doing great."

BANJO
Seen by Whale Samana on 1/23/13

Thanks to Joanne M Jarzobski who match this whale to Banjo a whale that PCCS disentangled.... what a great validation for the work they do!!

She added the following information:
""Banjo was disentangled on May 12, 2007 right off the tip of Ptown, literally feet from Race Point Lighthouse. Banjo had over 100 feet of line and bouys attached, with what seemed to be quite restricted movements. Banjo was first seen in 2006 and named for the mark in the upper left that looks like a Banjo." and "I also don't know of any confirmed sightings in 2010, 2011, or 2012, so PCCS would love to have this info officially (I've told them third person). I don't know about 2009, was seen in 2008."

Check out this facebook photo from Kim Sockeye approaches Whale Samana boat He is the ambassador of whales!

This message from Kim Beddall:
Hi Gale This is Kim from Whale Samana and we are all very excited because we have SOCKEYE here in the bay escorting a very large female with a calf from 2013.
I am writing because I think I remember a post somewhere around the 12 or 15th of January about Sockeye still feeding in Nova Scotia. Is that possible or did I mistake the name of the whale?
