Humpback Whale Flukes
Only good photos of the underside of a humpback whale fluke, the part that shows when the whale makes a deep dive, are useful. Flukes from all over the world are welcome, but only ones from the North Atlantic are useful in the flukematcher flickr site. Sign in to join mission
I work as a flukematcher for Allied Whale based at College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor Maine. They hold the catalog for North Atlantic Humpbacks and also for Southern Ocean Humpbacks. But on my own I have started a citizen based catalog on flickr where all photos have been contributed by flickr members and that is available for public use. If you go whale watching in the Gulf of Maine and get a good "fluke shot" you might be able to match it on flukematcher. And if it is a whale we don't already have you could contribute to the citizen based catalog.
