Russia

Humpback whale feeding grounds in Russia are some of the least studied in the world. In particular, little is known about the hard to reach and undeveloped regions such as the Arctic coast of Chukotka. Due to both recovery after depletion by commercial whaling and long-term climate change, humpback whales appear to be heading north and occupying previously depopulated or new Arctic habitats.
