The Wonders Of The Whales

The Wonders Of The Humpback Whales:  Newly Discovered Information That Helps The Humpback Whale To Survive

By Cheryl Freier

What is new in the whale world?  Scientists have just discovered while conducting research on whales at Antarctica that not every humpback whale migrates back to the equator for their breeding time.  When the winter begins in Antarctica, which is close the month of June, some of the humpbacks find themselves a place to hide, usually in a wind-hollowed crevice formed in the ice.  The whales are not pregnant and they save their strength from the long sea voyage to the Equator.  These humpback whales do differ in breeds—the same as animals who belong to different breeds.  However, the family of humpback whales is always identified by their songs, their call to each other.

Scientists have been tracking the humpback whales and caring about the whales’ environments and food supply.  You might say that the scientists are the modern day shepherds but not of their flock of sheep but of the humpback whales.  By learning as much information as they can about the whales, they are protecting them from predators, the elements, and making certain that the whales flourish in the seas.  

Cheryl Freier is the author of four historical fiction novels; she is the author and illustrator of one storybook, The Shepherd Boy And The Sheep Alphabet.  This book is a delightful reading experience for any young child.  Cheryl can be followed on www.thegraylinghiddentruthpoems.com.
