Artist's Description

The Humpback whale is one of the most studied marine mammal and yet, we still know very little. One important trait of the Humpback whale is that each individual has a unique color pattern on the underside of its tail (more properly called a fluke), and which displays designs in varying tones of white, grey and black. This particular characteristic makes it possible for us to identify each different individual by simply taking a clear photo of the underside of its fluke. This way, we can, over many years’ time, know who is where and doing what with whom. This also permits us to count and estimate the number of individuals of a certain population. A little nosy aren’t we? Well, let us be nosy because the more we know and understand about these magnificent creatures, the more apt we are at protecting them and assuring their survival as a species.
