Some whale stuff;
While not for a moment do I want to detract from the mighty MIGALOO 2, there are many other concerned people out there who have the desire to conserve and protect the Whale population Australia and worldwide, my first encounter with Whales was to be abysmal.
WE had moved to Ballina, that is my Mum and Stepfather, in 1954. Having just left school we lived for a short while in this then large coastal town in northern NSW.
Based in Ballina Harbor were two so called Whale harpoon vessels, the Byrond 1 and Byrond 2. They would be the enigma of my younger life, they would harpoon Whales passing by the area bounded by Ballina and Byron Bay.
