Happy World Whale Day! - A Humpback whale calf hitches a ride on it’s mom in the waters of the South Pacific. Humpback moms invest a lot into their offspring, with a gestation that lasts nearly a year and then spends the first year of the calf’s life teaching it all the skills it will need to survive in the sea. Theses bonds are strong and are an important element of whale culture.
