The Whitsundays White Humpback: Can you name the baby?
Late last month, the Whitsunday Islands received some global attention over an incredible photo taken by a local a white humpback whale calf.
Wayne Fewings captured this incredible sighting in Cid Harbour, an anchorage site of Whitsunday Island. Whether or not this white beauty is related to the infamous Migaloo remains in question, but one thing is for certain the local community feels it essential that this white whale calf should have a name.
All the buzz has opened up a naming contest open for anyone to participate in. A five day Whitsunday Sailing Adventure is being offered to the winner of the competition who gives our new friend the best suited name. Tourism Whitsundays, Whitsunday Escape and the local fisherman who spotted the calf will act as the official judges for this fun initiative. Casper, Lunar, Cid and Whitewash are a few of the suggestions that have already been entered.
Think you've got a better name? Don't hesitate to enter this could be your chance to sail the Whitsundays on a cruising yacht during the active whale watching season.
UPDATE to this article:
The official name has been decided as Chalky after one of the Whitsundays lovely chalk white beaches just of Whitehaven Beach.
