Whale Migration Safety Ensured

Whale Migration Safety Ensured

In Australia, whale migration begins in late May until November, with June to November tagged as whale watching season.


Members of Queensland’s Marine Animal Release Team (MART) have been training to help more than 22,000 whales migrate safely this year. MART officers are in place at key locations, including the Gold Coast.

The team members have been practising release techniques to ensure that any animal that gets entangled in shark nets will be released unharmed. Jeff Krause, manager of the Shark Control Program (SCP), encourages everyone to report any sightings of entangled animals to Sharkwatch Hotline 1800 806 891.
