For the first time ever, a mother grey whale has been caught on camera with two calves, thanks to the help of drone technology. Experts are unsure if the second calf was adopted by the mother, which would be extremely unlikely, or if the two calves are twins, which would be a similarly rare occurrence. There are no other known cases of a grey whale with two calves at once. This footage comes from Captain Dave?s Dolphin & Whale Safari, based out of Dana Point, California.
It?s beautiful footage of these majestic creatures. Unfortunately, human activity is literally laying waste to their home.
For example, the nuclear power plant disaster at Fukushima resulted in 300 to possibly over 450 tons of contaminated water containing radioactive iodine, cesium, and strontium-89 and 90 being flooded into the Pacific Ocean every single day. Contaminated water is still leaking and still poses a major problem.
