Wildlife – “Silver Bank Humpback Whales”
Located about 90 km north of the Dominican Republic, the Silver Bank is one of the few breeding and calving zones of the North Atlantic Humpback Whale. Declared a whale sanctuary in 1986, the Silver Bank plays host to thousands of migrating North Atlantic Humpback Whales yearly. It is estimated that between 5000-7000 humpbacks pass through this oddly shaped, forty square mile sanctuary each winter. Research indicates that the Silver Bank contains the largest seasonal population of humpbacks in the North Atlantic Ocean, if not the world.
Michelle photographed the humpbacks in 2015 and will return to photograph them again in 2018.
