Whales on the Mozambican coast
The Mozambican coast is part of the whale route that has been inhabiting this part of the world for millions of years. They migrate annually between June and December. Last week they were seen from Palma in Cabo Delgado. We leave you some images here.
The most common migratory Whales seen in the warm Mozambique waters are the Southern right Whales and the Humpback Whales. They migrate to cold waters in high latitudes to feed and then move on to warmer waters to mate and give birth.
Each migration season is an extremely important opportunity for marine biologists and dedicated volunteers to collect crucial data on the Whales through digital photography, studying behaviour, GPS positioning and DNA collection.
