retirement living forster NSW
The Humpback Whale annual migration is in full swing and thanks to the Marine Discovery Program, you can join visiting marine naturalist Jeannie Lawson to gain some insights into this amazing east coast natural event.

Each year over 35,000 humpback whales travel from their Antarctic summer feeding grounds in one of nature’s grandest spectacles and lucky MidCoast residents and visitors can witness it all from our local headlands!

Hunter Local Land Services and MidCoast Council are hosting whale expert Jeannie Lawson as part of the Marine Discovery Program, which brings together some of the leading names in marine research and conservation to share their findings and raise awareness of our amazing ocean environments.

Jeannie will be conducting free 40 minute talks at Bennetts Head Forster on Saturday 21 July at 10.30am, 11.30am, 12.30pm and 1.30pm – while you watch the gentle giants cruise past on their way north to breed, give birth and nurture their young.

The talks are free and there’s no need to book – simply turn up and we can enjoy the whales together.

When: Sat 21 Jul 2018, 10:30am, 11:30am, 12:30pm & 1:30pm
