During the 2007 whale migration, the Shoalhaven ‘adopted’ a humpback whale.
‘The Humpback Icon Project’ (HIP) coordinated by IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare), aims to raise awareness for the conservation and protection of whales and dolphins inhabiting Australian waters and to celebrate the annual humpback whale migration.
The ‘Whale Naming Ceremony’ revealed the name of the Shoalhaven whale! at Voyager Park Huskisson.
