I have been seeking a data source (either API or downloadable data) that would contain information on whale sightings from around the world.


Ideally it would contain all these fields but that is a long shot. I am looking for:

  • species of whale
  • timestamp of sighting
  • location of sighting
  • photo of sighting

Other info

  • It seems their used to be an open API Whale Hotline that had a /sightings endpoint but the API is no longer active.
  • The data I am after is similar to what is used on happywhale.com but I don't think their data is available to download.

If anyone knows of any data sources I could use I would be extremely grateful, thanks.
