Nurse the Humpback Whale

Her Story

Nurse’s fluke

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.
