|WELLINGTON LaMarcus Aldridge Jersey , July 6 (Xinhua) -- A rare white humpback whale, one of only four ever reported, has been seen frolicking in the Cook Strait between New Zealand's North and South islands Kyle Anderson Jersey , the Department of Conservation (DOC) confirmed Monday.
The whale was thought to be Migaloo, a white humpback that had been seen every year off eastern Australia since 1991, said DOC officials.
The whale was seen with another normal black humpback at the end of the DOC-organized Cook Strait Whale Survey Kawhi Leonard Jersey , an annual four- week count of whales passing through channel.
"This is so unique. I have never seen anything like this in New Zealand," marine mammal scientist Carlos Olavarria said in a DOC statement.
Survey Leader Nadine Bott said distinctive features on the whale like those on Migaloo, Australian Aboriginal for "white fellow Jimmer Fredette Jersey ," strongly indicated it was the same whale.
A skin sample for DNA analysis was taken from the white whale on Sunday with a biopsy and would be compared with Migaloo's DNA to confirm whether it was definitely the same whale.
The analysis would also identify whether the whale was albino or whether its whiteness was due to color variation.
"White humpbacks are extremely rare. Only four have been reported in the world," Bott said in the statement.
"Migaloo is the most famous and another white humpback whale was spotted in Norway this year. Migaloo is thought to have fathered two white calves which have been making appearances along Australia's eastern coast. One has been named MJ, short for Migaloo junior."
The annual whale survey assesses humpback whale recovery since commercial whaling ended in 1964 and is timed for humpback whales' northern migration to South Pacific breeding grounds.
The survey this year had a very high count of 122 humpback whales George Gervin Jersey , surpassing its previous highest of tally of 106 in 2012.
VIENNA, July 19 (Xinhua) -- The Austrian economy is on track for steady growth of an average 1.7 percent each year until 2021, a leading research institute said on Wednesday.
In its latest medium-term prognosis for the domestic economy Dennis Rodman Jersey , the Vienna-based Institute for Advanced Studies (IHS) said after many years of weak growth, the positive start to 2017 will be maintained going forward, albeit at a slightly lesser rate.
The anticipated growth rate will put Austria on par with growth expectations for the remainder of the eurozone Dejounte Murray Jersey , and be about one percent higher than average growth seen between 2012 and 2016.
The improved situation is largely expected to come from a strong increase in private consumption, as well as an increase in demand for exports on the back of an improvement in global trade.
The present trend toward an improved situation on the job market is also expected to continue, including an improvement in new jobs available as well as a continued drop in unemployment.
The latter will however still remain at a relatively high eight percent as per Austria's domestic calculation method by 2021 David West Jersey , IHS noted.
