Birth of Humpback Whale in Port Elizabeth

http://www.mype.co.za/: The birth of a humpback whale was filmed this weekend by a German TV crew which travelled to Port Elizabeth at the invitation of Rainer Schimpf from Dive Expert-Tours. The crew is in Port Elizabeth to see and film the marine diversity of Algoa Bay.

Rainer says; “Traveling around Cape Receife, we saw a breaching Humpback whale, as we came closer with the boat we realized that there were five Humpback whales displaying great activity in this area. They were diving up and down and behaving very excited for quite some time and then, suddenly, a sixth Humpback whale – a newborn baby, grey in colour and a with a bent hump, broke the surface to take its first breath!”

With this historic event caught on camera by the TV crew and still photographers, we have conclusive photographic proof of Algoa Bay being the birth place of a Humpback whale. Shortly after the baby Humpback surfaced for it’s first breath, the afterbirth also surfaced and drifted away.
