2009 06 17 87635 keeps going and going (hopefully with her calf) to Iceland Print
Written by Andrew Stevenson   

The latest report from Dr Alex Zerbini and Dr Phil Clapham of NOAA.

Our girl is definitely pointed Iceland-wards now.  This was yesterday, and she's due to report in again tomorrow if all remains well.

 

 

"Still haven't had a truly appropriate name for her... but thanks for all the suggestions, including those in bad Icelandic.  Dr Steve Katona helpfully suggested "Fugawi"* which, since this project is named after him (KAribbean Tagging Of North Atlantic whales) is, I suppose, his perverse right!

*as in "where the... etc?"  Yes, you're allowed to groan."
