Coin Story

One of nature's most impressive wonders is displayed each year, when millions of animals start their great annual migration, covering vast distances in search for food, mating partners or shelter.

Humpback whales arguably make the longest documented migration of any mammal. They spend their summer months feeding in polar waters, but with the onset of winter, food becomes scarce and the water becomes too cold. So, they migrate an average of 2,500km to tropical waters to breed and give birth, then make the same journey back.

With almost no rest along the way, they can cover over 1,600km per month. Young calves making their first migratory journey conserve their energy by riding the slipstream of their mother's wake.
