Whales under threat as climate change impacts migration
MetadataShow full item record
The sight of thousands of whales surfacing, jumping and playing off the coast of South America as they migrate toward their breeding grounds is one of nature’s most majestic displays. But global warming is killing off their food and changing their age-old migratory routes. To the tourists watching a humpback whale frolic with her newborn calf in the tropical waters off Ecuador’s coast near Puerto López, the sight of enormous fins surfacing, tails flipping and blowholes spouting is breathtaking.
