Humback Calf Strands on the wrong beach! VIA PEMBA DIVE CAMP
Hopefully we can find solutions for the Humpback calves beaching themselves during the Equinox or Spring Tides. A Humpback Whale Calf has been lost, due to the extreme Equinox or Spring Tides we have. Our reefs are so close to the shore as in 1st photo. We assume in high tide the calf came in and when the tide turned going out very fast, leaving the calf beached on the reef. Sadly, this is the second loss this year discovered at the Old Clay Pigeon Shooting range next to Pemba Beach Hotel.

- Just Another Savage!
- I’m a Southern Boy, just 56 last November, I get around here and there, Central America, Africa, Red Bay. I’m a Father, Grandfather, Husband, Artist and general flunky of sorts. Live in a little historic town in an old building I remodeled. Just wanted to hear myself think I guess, talk about the need of simplification, show some art, express an interest or two, brag on my dogs and see where it goes. That’s it!, That’s the deal, Thanks
