    It’s the second time this month a humpback has been reported in Vancouver’s harbour.

    A Reddit user posted video of a sighting last week, near New Brighton Park.

    Biologists have suggested that marine life, and whales in particular, may be getting a reprieve during the COVID-19 pandemic, due to a major decrease in noise from marine traffic.
