Adventure For Change was invited to participate in a six-week expedition to the Great Barrier Reef to research and document the unique Dwarf Minke Whale encounters that happen there each year. These whale/human interactions occur nowhere else on Earth and scientists are still unravelling the answers about what these whales do, where they go, and why they are so interested in us.
Spending over 50 hours in contact with 139 Dwarf Minke Whales, most of this underwater, the Adventure For Change team collaborated with researchers from Eye To Eye Marine Encounters and The Minke Whale Project to collect essential data on population dynamics, behaviour, and acoustics to learn as much as possible about these curious little whales to ensure their safety in Australian and international waters. A perfect example of people working together to make changes for a more sustainable future!
Thanks to John Butler Trio for allowing us to use their incredibly evocative music!!
