Humpback Whale Feeding Grounds.
It has been thought that Humpback whales have not indulged in feeding whilst on migration along the east coast of Australia. However there is growing evidence that humpback whales may feed opportunistically while migrating towards their breeding grounds. An article from The University of Queensland talks of common feeding around Eden on the southern New South Wales coast line. Humpback whales are seen feeding between September and November each year as they migrate south towards their Antarctic feeding grounds for the southern hemisphere's summer.
The University of Queensland is conducting further programs to learn more about the eating habits of the humpback whale. Use this Link to discover more wonderful information about the humpback whales passing the golden beaches of the Gold Coast.
