Gray whale spotted south of the equator for the first time

Scientists from the Namibian Dolphin project have confirmed the first ever sighting of a gray whale south of the equator. The news follows a unique sighting of a grey whale in the Mediterranean in May 2010.

The north Pacific gray whale has been extinct in the Atlantic since the 18th century, and this latest sighting is significant because it could mean the gray whale is recovering from hunts of the 20th century that reduced numbers to near extinction. Equally, the effects of climate change causing a disruption in their feeding habits could also be a reason for this unique sighting.
