click on photo for full story of how this discovery was made.
The top photo was in the Allied Whale catalog. It was taken in Brazil in 1999 by Instituto Balaie Jubarte. This was the photograph I used to match to the bottom photo that Freddy Johansen uploaded to flickr. It was taken in 2001 in Madagascar..... .
It has changed our understanding of how humpbacks use the southern oceans. Very important discovery and it was flickr that made it possible!!!
