A CHAPTER OF THE DOCUMENTARY SERIES COLOMBIA MEGADIVERSA
Humpback whales live in every ocean on earth. They come from their feeding areas located in the south of the continent and from Antarctica’s coast. Year after year, after travelling more than 8000 kilometers, they arrive to the colombian pacific coast where they give birth and raise their calves. During the last years, spotting these giant mammals has become a great attraction for tourists in the colombian pacific coast (one of the places with highest biodiversity on earth). Being an economic alternative to the communities, it has generated a need to control this activity in order to avoid possible conflicts between humans and whales. This chapter seeks all people to connect with the yubarta whale, learn about this magnificent species, their natural environment and encourage conservation.
