What to take note of……..
To help identify cetacean species found in our local waters, take note of the following features:
- Size of individuals
- Presence, or lack of, dorsal fin and its position
- Size and shape of pectoral fins
- Shape and height of blow
- Surfacing and diving behaviour
- Body size, shape and colour
Reporting your sighting helps us further understand the presence and movement of cetaceans along the Victorian coastline.
