The Humpback Whale can be found in most oceans around the world, the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans off the coast of Canada being just two of them. They do however tend to migrate up to 25,000 kilometres a year; they feed only in summer and when they migrate in the winter they go to warmer waters to breed and give birth. They mostly eat krill and small fish and have not been known to attack humans.

The Humpback Whale is still a target for the whaling industry. There are currently about 80,000 Humpbacks worldwide, but that is much lower than their previous numbers used to be. As their numbers have dropped quite a lot and due to the fact that they are still hunted by the whaling industry, when people go whale watching they often want to spot one, and it is still fairly rare occurrence to see one, especially in some areas of the world.

When people go whale watching in the Bay of Fundy, they will not only see humpback whales, but also seals, porpoises, and a variety of seabirds. Going whale watching and being able to see these magnificent mammals up close and personal really gives the viewer a perspective of how magnificent and unique these animals are, and also how important it is to preserve them for many years to come.
