Have you ever heard the sonorous groans, the unearthly whales and the eloquent adagios of male humpback whales serenading their mates? It’s a song that changes and lasts continuously for 22 hours!
Did you know that 40-ton humpbacks sing, not just to attract mates, but also for their supper or at least while they hunt for it?
The songs of the humpbacks are a sophisticated language that’s different in different parts of the world. That’s just like people in different countries who speak different languages.
Please support the crucial conservation work of Sea Shepherd because they’re protecting the “doctors of the sea” — the whales.
Love is the solution.
