South Africa is one of the best destinations worldwide for watching marine mammals, whether from land or from boats, with spectacular annual visits from southern right and humpback whales and enormous pods of dolphins year-round.
Every year southern right whales migrate from their icy feeding grounds off Antarctica to warmer climates, reaching South Africa in June. Then the coastal waters teem with the giant animals, mating, calving and rearing their young - and giving whale-watchers spectacular displays of raw power and elegant water acrobatics.
The first International Whale Watching Workshop, taking place in Cape Town this week, will bring scientists and managers from around the world together to develop a framework for the sustainable management of whale watching globally.
