Approximately 10,000 of the world’s humpback whale population pass the Port Stephens coast line on their 12,000km migration every year. The humpback whale undertakes a northern migration from May to August, travelling from its feeding grounds in Antarctica to the warmer tropical waters of the Pacific. They then make the return journey south from August to November. This is the longest documented migration of any mammal on earth and the reason for the journey is to breed. Despite its enormous size at birth, a newborn whale (calf) is born without a protective blubber layer so if it were born in the near-freezing temperatures of the Antarctic waters, its chances of survival would be slim. So the whales head north to the warmer climate to give birth to their young.
