Each year, thousands of humpback whales migrate through Australia’s Pacific coast on their way north to mate and give birth. And it appears that the number of whales making the trip is only getting larger and larger every year.
According to an upcoming study, the number of migrating whales off of Australia’s east coast will have doubled from the year 2009 to 2017. The increase in numbers has also led to an increase in size and frequency of the migration groups.
Despite the increasing numbers, there’s still significant growth required to reach the pre-whaling population of 40,000. Australia banned whaling in 1979, and since then the population has begun to reach a healthy number. For more info, check out the original article as published, here.
