Humpback whales were missing the scientists of the Kamchatka branch of the Pacific Institute of Geography. Together with employees of the Faculty of Biology of Moscow State University, they conduct research in the Senyavin Strait near the Chukchi Peninsula. This season, instead of hundreds of animals, specialists came across only a few.

Information published on the website of the Beringia National Park. According to him, this season, scientists met only 16 humpback whales, while in the last two years of research they photographed hundreds of animals. Experts have not yet raised a panic and are trying to find out the reason for the "disappearance" of unique animals from this territory.

According to one version voiced on the site, due to climate change, the whales had to move further north. On the other hand, the absence of fish made them leave their habitat. A proof of this version is the mass death of seabirds, which was recorded by inspectors of the national park. It is also associated with a lack of feed.
