Conservation Corner Why do humpback whales Sing ?

The first recording of the humpback whale song was made by the U.S. navy ships in the late 1950’s off Hawaii and Bermuda. However, it was not until the 1960’s that the songs were identified as coming from whales. Today, scientists use a device called a hydrophone (or underwater microphone) to record humpback whale songs so that we can learn more about their purpose and characteristics of the songs. There are multiple theories for the purpose of the whale songs. In general, researchers agree that only the males sing, and the songs are used for sexual selection. Whether it is to attract females, intimidate other males or both, is still unknown.
