OceansWatch wants volunteer yachties for South Pacific whale project
One of the most remote island countries on earth, Niue lies in the South Pacific Ocean, a lone Polynesian coral island between Samoa to the north, the Cook Islands to the east and Tonga to the west. Niue is thought to be a possible area where humpback whales from the eastern and western Pacific meet and mix. OceansWatch has been approached by Olive Andrews from the South Pacific Whale Research Consortium (SPWRC) for assistance. Together with the Niue Government and a local NGO, Oma Tafua, Olive aims to conduct sighting surveys during the late winter south-bound migration of humpback whales. Due to the lack of an appropriate boat and financial constraints this project could not be carried out last year. OceansWatch has been approached by the 'South Pacific Whale Research Consortium' SPWRC for assistance.
