Description:
Mortality due to entanglement and collisions with ships has been reported within the Southern Hemisphere. To varying degrees these threats are all present in both the Oceania region and the Southern Ocean. The International Whaling Commission’s Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary and temporary moratorium against commercial whaling offers limited protection to Humpback Whales from commercial whaling, but scientific whaling remains a threat. There is no focused mechanism to address any of the other threats faced by Humpbacks at this end of their migration.
