UH marine mammal research captures rare video of newborn humpback whale

The humpback whale calf is so new that its dorsal fin and tail flukes appear soft and flimsy, and its mother is still excreting blood, while sometimes supporting the calf on her back. The rare video minutes after birth was captured by the University of Hawaiii at Manoa’s Marine Mammal Research Program (MMRP) in January 2019.
