First blue whale sighting in Pakistan

Researchers in Pakistan have recorded video footage of what is believed to be the first confirmed sighting of a blue whale mother and her calf off the coast of Pakistan. While bones of blue whales had been found in the country, a live whale had never previously been seen.

The sighting by a skipper with WWF-Pakistan, was made off Churna Island in Balochistan.
