Land & Sea Country

Blue Whale Study pays respect to the original custodians of the land and sea on which Blue Whale Study operates.  During glacial periods, the Gunditjmara, Buandig, Giraiwurung and other indigenous groups lived and hunted on what is now the continental shelf.

Blue Whale Study acknowledges that the conservation and management of this region’s natural environment transpired over many thousands of years of spiritual and cultural connections to the land and waters by the first people of this region. It is our intention to honour these connections through our projects aimed at understanding and maintaining the oceanic ecosystem which supports blue whales.
