Fellowship of the Whales
Video: Cooperative Feeding

Humpback whales form teams for cooperative feeding. One whale blows a ring of bubbles to corral the herring. Another whale gives a deep, long feeding call. Finally, each whale takes a giant mouthful of fish and water.

  • jonny b

    isnt wonderful how they werent hunted to extinction so that we could observe something so fascinating. just imagine what other things we can learn from creatures that are about to be destroyed permanently : \ and why dont we take this knowledge and use bubbles instead of drift nets….

    As a Volunteer with the Hawaiian Island Humpbackwhale National Marine Sanctuary, here on Maui, I was very interested in viewing the cooperative bubble net feeding. Your coverage and film work was outstanding

    Direct mail services are a cost-effective solution for business owners who want to dramatically increase sales and expand their loyal customer base. It is a marketing approach that delivers high-volume sales results through physical connection with potential customers. Emails are often directed to spam folders or deleted without ever being opened. Direct mailings are entirely different because a majority of people open and look at physical mail delivered to them.
