From the artist

The whales have been swimming through the Tarkine, doing routine inspections and tag testing the whole area to be on the safe side, making shore (sic) the humans aren't self-harming or putting each other at risk. Apparently their report read, and I quote: "Useable in its current state, but will need monitoring. Although most of the area seems ok, as a whole, we were a little concerned about the amount of phenomenalism hanging around. Hopefully this won't discourage other species from enjoying the area."
