First blue whale sighting in Pakistan
Researchers in Pakistan have recorded video footage of what is believed to be the first confirmed sighting of a blue whale mother and her calf off the coast of Pakistan. While bones of blue whales had been found in the country, a live whale had never previously been seen.
The sighting by a skipper with WWF-Pakistan, was made off Churna Island in Balochistan.
Blue whales are the largest creature ever to have lived on Earth and their numbers were severely reduced by years of commercial whaling during the last century.
