Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
Fieldwork for the long-term research on eastern Australian humpback was undertaken in Hervey Bay during September 2013 aboard the annual whale research expedition. Analysis and publication of research results continued throughout the 2013/2014 year. The public awareness and education program was sustained throughout the 2013/2014 year, with continued management, maintenance and updating of The Oceania Project, iWhales and Songlines websites and six social media outlets. Collaboration with Scientists from the Australian Marine Mammal Centre (AMMC), the South Pacific Whale Research Consortium (SPWRC) and the Southern Cross University Whale Research Group (SCUWRG) yielded new research of humpback whale feeding grounds in Antarctica. The Oceania Project again partnered with the Hervey Bay Community and the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) in undertaking the 'National Day of Action for the Humpback Whales'. Work continued with the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) on the 'Humpback Whale ICON Project'. The number of Australian Communities involved in the annual program of activites for the Humpback Icons increased to seventy. The Oceania Project conducted numerous TV, Newpaper, News Magazine and Radio interviews during the annual Humpback Whale Migration.
