On 11 September 2023 Anchorage Daily News reported:
There was a time when Christine Gabriele wondered if she'd ever see one of her favorite creatures again. That 42-year-old female humpback whale -- known as whale 219 to Gabriele and other biologists at Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve -- had been missing from her favorite Icy Strait herring-fishing grounds in Alaska. No one had seen the whale in two years.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
...Gabriele points out that biologists have executed the humpback population study every year since 1985 using the same method: photographing the whales' tails -- each as distinctive as a fingerprint -- as the whales dive. That has helped tell a long-term saga of the whales.
...On the bright side, Gabriele reported that she and Neilson have documented 11 calves in summer 2023, 'a fairly good number.' When those calves return in the future, eventually the females among them bring their own calves, which builds the population.
And -- yes! -- have also spotted and photographed 219 this summer. Seeing that familiar gray-black body arcing through blue Alaska waters is a comfort to those who know her.
'When the whales are doing well, we are too,' Gabriele said.
