Latest #update from our ride out crew at #ShamuStadium. #hurricaneirma

Migaloo is perhaps the most famous humpback whale in the world. His distinctive absence of pigmentation due to albinism allows people to easily identify him and report sightings.

He was first spotted in 1991 off Byron Bay, Queensland by a group of volunteers conducting a whale count. The first photograph of Migaloo was taken through a telescope from a distance of over 5km away. It was blurry and unclear if he was all white. In 1993 PWF (Pacific whale foundation) researchers encountered this amazing white whale in Hervey Bay, Queensland. During our first encountered we were able confirm the whale was all white, and in 1998 PWF recorded the whale singing, a trait distinct to male humpback whales.

Until 2011, Migaloo was the only albino Humpback whale spotted anywhere in the world. Therefore, the appearance of a young whale that is 100 percent white renewed the excitement that had initially been caused by Migaloo. Although it is impossible to know for certain whether or not Migaloo is related to the young white whale in question, it has been nicknamed Migaloo Jr and MJ.

PWF researchers estimated he was 8 – 10 years at time of initial sighting making him approximately 32-36 years old in 2015. He has been observed in New Zealand waters but primarily off east Australia migrating as far north as Cooktown and south past Sydney.

Migaloo and the other two whales are members of the east Australian population of humpback whales. Migaloo’s population of humpback whales feed in Antarctica from November to April and migrates along the east coast of Australia to breed near the Great Barrier Reef from May to October.

Update from @seaworldorlando please even if you don't like captivity like I don't be nice if you comment, this update is for the animals /Kim
PART 1: We've read your comments and concerns and want to update you on how we prepare #shamustadium for #hurricaneirma and care for the #killerwhales during the storm.

ADÁN

Adán was the first orca calf born within a Spanish park. He was born in 2010 to Keto and Kohana, at time of birth, Kohana was only 8 years old. Kohana being so young and not have been raised right herself rejected Àdan as soon as he was born. He was taken into the medical pool where he was raised by the trainers. Even as Adan was being hand-nursed by park staff, Kohana became pregnant again, this time with Vicky*. The father in both pregnancies was Keto, who is Kohana’s uncle, making Adan and Vicky up to 6.25% inbred.
Kohana dismissed both of her calves, because she simply didn't know what to do with them since she has been torn from her mother, Takara, at very young age to be shipped to Loro Parque. As a result, Kohana missed out on the experience that would have passed to her through her mother.

There were concerns when he started to be introduced to the other orcas at the park, months after his birth as he was still young, the larger whales could harm him. Kohana can be placed with Adán but does not play a maternal role to him.

At first he was often put in the show pool prior to the performances, but slowly he was introduced to the rest of the pod and even started performing with them during shows.

Adán was the first whale to be introduced to Morgan when she arrived in 2011 and the two seem to get along well; eventually, Adán was introduced to all of the other whales as well.

Many people have also expressed concern over Adán and his health, as pictures taken at the park show he often looks sickly and has poor body condition.
