Andrew Stevenson Gives Whale Presentations

March 16, 2013

Andrew Stevenson, who started the Humpback Whale Research Project in 2007, will be giving two presentations on Tuesday [Mar 19] at BUEI Tradewinds Auditorium.

This illustrated lecture will include never-before witnessed, extraordinary underwater video of humpback behavior here in Bermuda as well as their breeding grounds in the Caribbean.

Admittance to this fundraising event is $25 and will see two showings start at 6.30pm and 8.30pm with tickets available from BermudaTix.

The Project’s intermediate goal is to obtain over 1,000 fluke IDs here in Bermuda by the end of the 2016 season. By the end of 2012 they had obtained 673 fluke IDs which compares to 145 Bermuda fluke IDs over the 40 years before this project began.

    Those are awesome videos. Mr. Stevenson must have a hard time going to sleep after spending the day with magnificent creatures like these, allowing him to share their space. There are some very close encounters in this video… yet they seem to respect their guests.

    Thanks for giving us a slice of natural beauty hidden under water, Andrew.
