Where: Lady Denman Heritage Complex Huskisson
When: June 6 2009 with Cake cutting at midday.
Event: Join us to celebrate Muriyira’s first birthday at the World Enviro Fest on the 6th June 2009 and support marine mammal research and conservation.
Muriyira was adopted by the Shoalhaven in 2008 and has been officially registered with the Humpback Whale Migration Icon Project. Pronounced moori yira Muriyira means whale in Dhurga, the local indigenous language.
The Humpback Whale Migration Icon Project helps and encourages coastal communities along the eastern seaboard of Australia to celebrate the annual humpback whale migration by ‘adopting’ a whale as their local whale. This aids raising awareness of the threats facing our whales and to generate action to protect these whales.
