Cape Byron on whale watch list

NSW Environment Minister Robyn Parker has acknowledged Cape Byron’s importance to whale watchers in a new statement on this year’s whale watching season.

The comment came after The Northern Star reported Ms Parker had excluded Australia’s most easterly point in a list of “the premier vantage points on the whales’ northern migration”.

Soon after the report, Ms Parker amended her statement to include Cape Byron “which is the most easterly point of the Australian mainland and where whales pass very close to the iconic Cape Byron lighthouse”.

The statement came with the launch of the 2011 whale watching season in Sydney, along with a Twitter campaign, urging whale watchers to “tweet” each other about sightings.

The campaign also comes with a website - www.wildaboutwhales.com.au.

Whale watchers were being asked to tweet sightings @WildAboutWhales.
