One of the most well recognized whale species in our oceans has to be the Humpback Whale. From their acrobatics in the water to their melodic acoustics under the seas, Humpbacks amaze us. It is not too well known that Humpbacks were nearly hunted to extinction in the 20th Century and only survive today due to the ban on international whaling and focused protections from governments from around the world. Once down to an estimated population of only around 5000 whales, today there are estimates of over 100,000 Humpbacks all around the world. These whales are truly astounding and are key players in maintaining our oceans health. Another wonderful species that you need to learn more about.
