4 Reasons Humback Whales coming back to New Jersey

4 Reasons Humback Whales coming back to New Jersey

NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

A lot more people have been leaving New Jersey over the last few years for a variety of reasons. But a certain segment of the population has been coming into the state in increasing numbers.

New Jersey is helping to save the whales.

The Cape May Whale Watch and Research Center has sighted 37 whales so far this year, compared to only 15 through October in 2013. Reports say sightings from New York down to Monmouth County have increased from 43 to 57 since last year. Marine biologist Amy Bergeron said, according to NorthJersey.com, “We know they come here for the food, and you’re seeing huge batches of bait fish close to the shore.”

Paul Sieswerda of the Gotham Whale group that tracks marine mammals in the New York area said the increase in whales comes from cleaner waters. According to The Guardian, Sieswerda said the improved water has brought in much larger numbers of fish that the whales eat.
