Yet another stunning video about Whales in the Kermadec region by my fellow Kermadec Artist Bruce Foster

SIGHTINGS from Bruce Foster on Vimeo.

Each year during the months of October and November thousands of humpback whales depart their breeding grounds in Polynesia for the long migration south. They swim through the Kermadec waters, passing close to Raoul Island, and on to the Antarctic where krill is abundant during the summer months. In SIGHTINGS, marine biologist Rochelle Constantine, attempts to capture a DNA sample from one or the early starters – a sole humpback – the only one seen near Raoul during a week in September 2012. These samples contribute to the growing understanding of the lifecycle of this species.
