Join us for a night of personal tales from those who are uniquely connected to Australia’s Humpback Whales. We will start with voices of our traditional owners who will explain the importance of the whales that visit the bay to the Butchulla peoples and how Whale Songlines connect First Nations along the entire East Coast of Australia. Learn how citizen scientists and technological advancements have been making it easier for individual whales to be tracked through “Happy Whale”. Finally, meet the researchers working out of Hervey Bay and learn about the pressures that our most treasured visitors must face, from climate change through to boat interactions. Together they are Creating Waves.
