Humpback whale corporate adoption

£500 minimum donation, plus £500 fundraising target.

The humpback whale is renowned for being one of the most energetic of the large whales, and can be distinguished by their large size, knobbly head and 5m long flippers. Male humpbacks sing the longest, most complex songs in the animal kingdom, that are even divided into 'verses' and sung in a specific order, which may last for as long as half an hour.

Humpback whales make long journeys, and can travel at 25 mph, but move more slowly during migration, resting and socialising along the way. Each population of humpbacks has its own migration route; generally they spend the winter in warm, low latitudes or tropical waters breeding and giving birth, and the spring, summer and autumn feeding in cooler, high latitude polar waters.

More than 250,000 humpbacks were killed in past whaling operations. Many humpback populations are recovering but some are still endangered as a result of habitat loss; chemical and noise pollution; entanglement in fishing nets and lack of food.

You can adopt Pepper, Salt, Reflection and Midnight. These four charismatic humpback whales are part of the humpback whale population who spend the summer months around the coast of New England, USA.
