Humpback whale tailThe Draft Management Program for managing interactions with humpback whales along the Ningaloo Coast was open for public comment from 13 January to 13 February 2020. The draft sets out humpback whale management arrangements for the Ningaloo Coast. It focuses on in-water interactions but also considers recreational activities, commercial whale watching and other operations. The draft has been prepared by the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions in consultation with Gnulli joint management partners, commercial operators and scientists. Public input to the draft will help inform the management of humpback whales and is highly valued.
