Migaloo, the only documented albino humpback whale in the world passed the Gold Coast today accompanied by a smaller humpback.<br />

Migaloo is perhaps the most famous humpback whale in the world. His distinctive absence of pigmentation due to albinism allows people to easily identify him and report sightings. He was first spotted in 1991 off Byron Bay, Queensland by a group of volunteers conducting a whale count. The first photograph of Migaloo was taken through a telescope from a distance of over 5km away. It was blurry and unclear if he was all white. In 1993  Pacific Whale Foundation (PWF) researchers encountered this amazing white whale in Hervey Bay, Queensland. During our first encountered they were able confirm the whale was all white, and in 1998 PWF recorded the whale singing, a trait distinct to male humpback whales. Photo: joliphotos
