Reports of migrating Fin Whales, also known as Rorquals, have become a common occurrence in British Gibraltar Territorial Waters (BGTW) during this time of the year when these majestic animals are seen making their way to the North Atlantic Ocean. The Government says that these sightings highlight the importance of our waters as a migratory corridor, not just for whales, but for a variety of marine wildlife such as turtles, sunfish, sharks and seabirds.
