The Humpback Whales in San Francisco


The crown of humpback whales visiting San Francisco. I think this is because of  climate change.We have drought and rain and no rain kind of weather. So this is unusual for animals and Humpback Whales are migrating to San Francisco.

The word migration ,” the physical movement by animals from one area to another “.

“The deeper they get into the bay, the more acoustically confusing it becomes,” Schramm said.Mary Jane Schramm, a spokeswoman for the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary.
