Whale watching is endangering the humpback whales in Hawaii

The southern right whale lives in the southern hemisphere and usually arrives in Patagonia in May to breed in the warm waters. Chubut province, including the Peninsula Valdes, offer very good sites for observation. The species , which has been protected since 1935, saw its numbers increase. Its current population is unknown. The latest estimate of the International Whaling Commission was in 1997 and 7500 indicated individuals. The population must be higher today. However, in recent years, Argentines observe a decrease in populations of southern right whales just the side of the Peninsula Valdes.
