Whale of a time

Written by Maureen

Firstly, apologies to everyone who tried to watch the previous video. Please try again – it should work now.

Now back to the post… Hermanus is considered to be one of the best shore-based whale-watching spots in the world, and we were there at the Southern Right time (sorry!). Around August and September every year, these whales come into the bay to mate and give birth.

    Are we listening to Matt narrate?

      No, it’s actually David Attenborough. We had him flown in especially. ; )

      I’ve decided to try and do a bunch of vaguely-silly wildlife documentaries, if Maureen can film interesting enough subject matter!

    OMG! You must be online RIGHT NOW. I just posted that. You would be GREAT as a nature narrator .. right up there with Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom or PBS Nature.

    I thank you for fixing the previous (dung beetle) vid. It worked great.

    And this one is fantastic. Furthermore, I’d never HEARD either of you before…. Maureen, will you narrate the next one?
