The Mediterranean Grey Whale

Migration Grey Whale Migration Grey Whale

Wally, the Grey Whale, continues his trip along the Mediterranean Coast. This week Wally got almost stranded near Pisa and the Coastal Guard helped him. Than Wally was seen in many harbours, like Viareggio: it’s forbidden to go nearer than 100 meters to the Whale, but often Wally gets very close to boats and people. Now the Whale is near the boarder with France.

Experts of Tethys Research Institute confirmed that it’s a young whale, 6-7 months old, probably born in the Atlantic.

    The whale is very undernourished. It has never seen eating, just travelling, 80-90 kms a day, and is now almost only skin and bones.

    This week Wally got caught in a fishing net in France, but managed to free himself.

    Forgive my question if it seems…
    But is there no way to feed him/her, just to allow this calf to reach the open sea ?
