Every year North Pacific Humpback Whales leave the icy waters around Alaska during the fall, swimming practically non-stop for nearly six to eight weeks before reaching their Hawaiian winter home, where they mate, give birth, and nurture their newborn babies. Their annual migration of about 6,000 miles is one of the longest of any mammal on earth.This trek is extremely hard on these mystical creatures yet they make the long voyage in order to ensure a greater chance of safety and survival for their newborns. They make this voyage to support the ones they love regardless of how daunting or difficult the task may seem. Scientists are beginning to discover that Humpback Whales may be one of the few species of wildlife that naturally exhibit empathy and compassion.
