From July to December about a thousand whales arrive in order to reproduce. These 15-meter long and 60-ton mammals give birth to only one calf every two or three years, and the moments of courting rituals, reproduction and calf's growing up are almost sacred.
Whale-watching provides vital income for almost a hundred local communities, informs "The State of Whale Watching in Latin America", published in 2008 by the International Fund for the Protection of Animals and their Habitats, Global Ocean and the Society for the Conservation of Whales and Dolphins.
The Valdes Peninsula alone is visited by more than 240,000 people every year. The second place is Brazil, where it is also possible to watch right whales, and then Mexico. Since 1998, about 6.4 million people have gone to watch whales in the entire region.
Each guest aboard the watching vessels must know the rules and promise to fulfill them. To go whale-watching following the laws passed for this activity is also a way to collaborate in the conservation of the Right Whale and its habitat: the Ocean.
