Whale watching San Francisco and Monterey Bay may also happen in British Columbia, that sounds remarkable, Scientist say.
The most endangered whale species on earth sighted in British Columbia on October 25 near the entrance of Juan de Fuca Strait near Victoria.
“British Columbia waters are their historic territory, which is why it’s so exciting to scientists to have documented the first two sightings in the region in 62 years”, according to report.
A 2009 study, prepared for IFAW, estimated that 13 million people went whale watching globally in 2008.
Whale watching generated $2.1 billion per annum in tourism revenue worldwide, employing around 13,000 workers. Commercial whaling for right whales was banned as a result of international treaties in 1935.
