On the rebound

Whale species are staging extraordinary recoveries after being hunted to the verge of extinction. Southern right whales may approach their original population in Australian waters by 2050. Populations of humpback whales are expanding in the North Atlantic, North Pacific and off Western Australia. The relatively clean and remote southern feeding grounds of Southern Hemisphere whale populations are aiding the recovery. As whale numbers increase their reproductive behaviour is becoming better understood.
