Humpback Whales are among the best known and most loved of all whales. From their playful aerial behaviours, a delight of whale watchers around the world, to their haunting and mysterious songs, humpback whales capture the imagination of young and old alike.
Humpbacks are primarily identified by the distinct characteristics of the black and white pigmentation on the underside of their flukes (tails). This pattern is as unique as human fingerprints, and allows us to photograph this pattern, identify specific whales and determine their offspring. With Ocean Alliance, you do not only support one individual whale, but a whole family of whales! Three humpback matriarchs (female heads of families) are offered through our whale adoptions program for 2015. These matriarchs have been chosen because they are consistently sighted with their growing families and have been since the early 1980’s. These families have endeared themselves to casual whale watchers and Ocean Alliance researchers alike.
Adopting a whale gives whale lovers an opportunity to share the unique experience of getting to know these very special individuals and their families.This winter buy a holiday gift that will keep on giving! Click on any of the items below to learn more!
