Humpback Whale Migration
Well, maybe not as long as a Humpback Whale, like many other animals on our beautiful planet, Humpback Whales embark on one of the longest mammal migrations in the WORLD! The migration takes place every year and sees them travel a distance of 10 000 km that’s a lot of laps at the Husky Sea pool!
On the northern migration pregnant females are in a hurry to give birth and are often escorted by other females and interested males, we see are seeing an increasing number of whales passing Jervis Bay and along the East Coast of Australia every year. On their way to warm waters Humpbacks give birth and breed, relax and socialise! – Sounds alright to me!
These migratory routes are learned by each generation and passed on to the next- a bit like their song- that’s a whole other story!
