Whale Migration

Every year, most if not all large whales in the southern hemisphere with a common immigration policy model. Most of the whales in the Southern Hemisphere, the summer is spent in the icy waters of Antarctica, where they spend their time feeding on large krill. As temperatures begin to fall in autumn, and ice begins to form the sea surface, the whale migration begins north of immigration more warmer, subtropical and some species, in tropical waters and creates a mate returned to Antarctic waters at the end of the spring.

September is the season for migration of humpback whales to the south. It is a time when you're likely to see this year's baby humpbacks, born a few weeks before their tropical or subtropical motherhood some places, such as Mackay and the Whitsundays on the east coast and west off the Kimberly coast. Newborn whales do not survive birth in the icy waters of Antarctica. Accompanied by a young calf's mother for several years the annual migration and women do not mate again until their calf is independent.

Minke whales

Minke whales are pronounced "minkie" are one of the smallest species of baleen whale. Males grow almost 9 feet long and females almost 11 feet long and weighs about two tons in 1910.

The Minke whale is the only baleen whale species, which is still common in the waters of Antarctica. They have seen hundreds of kilometers a heavy pack ice in the middle of winter, and some of them apparently spend the winter there.

In the summer seems to be the privileged environment of open pack ice pack ice which is pretty much open water among the ice.

Very heavy ice, caught their breath Minkes said head vertically out of the narrow cracks in ice. Minkes now the subject of whaling, which kills Minkes for "scientific research". Even if you can find packs a minke whale in the Antarctic winter, many Minke whales move somewhere tropical waters grow in the winter.

South Right Whales

Great Australian coast in the North Sea Whale Sanctuary South Australia has a long connection with Southern Right whales. Cetaceans are a group of marine mammals known as cetaceans, including all whales, dolphins and porpoises.
