    Whales are one of the few animals that can migrate very long distances in this big planet. In the southern coast of Mozambique these humpback whales escape from the cold waters of the Antarctic to find a calm place to give birth and an area with many nutrients for their new born.

    Story 1

    Nice photo of mother humpback whale and calf. What makes this photo unique from the hundreds of humpback photos out there is the army of remoras on the side of the mother.
