Sperm Whale Match!

The pictures above are all from the same Sperm Whale!

It is a Female and it was spotted in 2007 and 2008 in the Central Group Islands by Whale Watch Azores, then in 2012 on the South Coast of São Miguel by Terra Azul and this year(actually this past week!) in the Central Group again by Whale Watch Azores!

With this we can realize how important photo identification is. This way we can understand more about them. Specially where they hang around! 🙂

Thank you Whale Watch Azores and Lisa Steiner for your collaboration with us!
