Brief description

Location and Estimated Period of Humpback Whale Activity in WA (DoIR (Department of Industry and Resources, WA, 2003).

The Map relates to migration behaviour of the Humpback Whale(Megaptera novaeangliae), notable for their long flippers, complex 'songs' and frequent aerial behaviours. The periods for resting and calving shown are estimated peak migration periods. Actual timing of annual migration may vary by as much as 3 weeks from year to year due to food availability in the Antarctic.

The major calving ground identified is situated in the Kimberly region - Camden Sound.
