WDC biologist, Cara Miller, is advising local people to stay clear of a humpback whale that has entered a lagoon near Dravuwalu in Fiji.

Cara carries out research, outreach and educational work in the South Pacific, working with local communities. A second whale is thought to have already left the lagoon.
