Istar the Humpback Whale
Istar is a fantastic mother. She has more calves than any other known humpback whale. Every two or three years she brings a new calf back to the same feeding grounds she has frequented since 1976.
With eleven known calves and eight grandcalves, she was appropriately named for the Egyptian Goddess Istar – the Goddess of Fertility! Can you see her calf in the picture?

If you adopted Istar from any of the Adopt A Whale Programs in the US or UK, you can meet her!
You will be delighted to spend 19 minutes watching Istar with one of her eleven calves. You see Istar’s tail pattern many times with the calf tucked in very close. The calf breaches completely out of the water and then begins flippering.
