About this title


Hawaii's Humpback Whales is an informative and richly illustrated description of the humpback whale and its behavior. This book is unique in providing the opportunity to learn about one species of whale in sufficient degree to recognize its behaviors and displays, and perhaps even interpret the significance of many of them. This fine volue includes a behavior "key" describing activities and the contexts in which they occur; detailed information on where and how to watch for whales; regulations govering human activity in the vicinity of whales; what to do in case of a stranding; and a discussion of the future management and conservation of humpback whale populations.
