July marked the official start of humpback whale migration season in the Bazaruto Archipelago. The team at BCSS have already witnessed many sightings, including a group of five male humpbacks escorting a female and calf, off the south of the island last week.
“These majestic marine nomads cover thousands of miles from high-latitude summer feeding grounds, where they take advantage of the food resources of vast swarms of krill that feed on the phytoplankton blooms, to low-latitude winter breeding grounds, with Mozambique Channel being one of those, where they mate, give birth, nurse, and then return,” Katya Kalashnikova, BCSS.
It is a fantastic season to visit Benguerra Island and witness the beauty of the humpback as they make their run along the Mozambique coastline over the next three months.
