Maui Wildlife!!

April 28, 2011

I spent most of February and March in Maui Hawaii, finally went through the photos to post. AMAZING Humpback Whale encounters!! I started ‘talking’ to the whales and a young juvenile, female, I think, chose to swim around and under our boat for about 45 minutes! I am convinced the marine mammals are sometimes as curious about humans as we are about them!

There was a huge number, thousands, of Humpbacks in the Hawaii waters, for their seasonal birthing and mating. The sightings were as visible from shore as out in boats. The Whale Trust hosted a great whale research conference. Check them out by the link posted to the left under blogroll.

We also represented the Lolita rally- bring her home to her L-Pod of Orcas in the Salish Sea, with Orca Network folks, educating visitors and locals.

Whale festivals, education, and celebrations every weekend! Beaches, hills, volcanoes, towns, wonderful people, exotic plants and birds!
