Why Whales come to Patagonia
Humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) undertake seasonal migration between productive high-latitude areas where they feed in summer and low-latitude tropical waters where mating and calving occur during winter. In the eastern south Pacific, the species breeds off Colombia and Ecuador, and feeds primarily in the western Antarctic Peninsula and in the waters of the Strait of Magellan, like feeding ground for humpback whales. The duration of the whale's trip between these migratory destinations is 88 and 99 days. The humpback whale enters the channels of the Strait of Magellan and stayed there for almost five months to eat and rest.
