Drone Captures Rare Glimpse Of Blue Whale Mother And Her Calf


Anti-whaling activists have shared remarkable drone footage showing a blue whale mother swimming alongside her calf.

The MV Steve Irwin was searching for poachers in late January as part of “Operation Icefish 2015-16” when the ship happened upon the massive animals.

“The ship … encountered the pair while on the search for illegal activity on the high seas,” said a post on the ship’s official Facebook page.

Crew members dispatched a drone and recorded the unbelievable sighting.
