Marc MacCormack recently photographed this awesome albino humpback whale swimming north, with dolphin escorts, off Green Island, Queensland during the annual humpback migration from Antarctica to the Great Barrier Reef.
We just learned that this is not the first time this unusual whale has been seen. In fact he even has a name and his appearance each year is a highly anticipated and celebrated event. This is Migaloo, an adult male humpback whale thought to have been born in 1986. He was first spotted in 1991 and, until a white calf was spotted in September 2011, Migaloo was thought to be the only all-white humpback whale in the world.
