Humpback whales

Humpback whales
by Scott Portelli

Each year between July and October, Humpback whales frequent the tropical waters to mate and give birth. The buoyancy control of a 40 tonne whale in currents and a liquid space is indicative of their relationship with their environment. Humpback whales are very protective of their newborn calves and will stay within close proximity. using grunts and whistles to communicate to her calf, she is always aware of where the curious youngster might be and always ready to move at a moment’s notice.
