Nurse the Humpback Whale
Before she was named, this whale was often seen in close quarters with injured whales. How much more appropriate would a name be than Nurse?
Although Nurse has not been sighted since 1993, I keep looking for this caring and gentle whale. I hope to see her again with a calf like Stylus, born in 1989.
