Abercrombie declares February Humpback Whale Awareness Month

Gov. Neil Abercrombie has declared February to be Humpback Whale Awareness Month. 

The governor said Monday the species represents the diversity of ocean life around the Hawaiian Islands and reflects the deep connection the people of Hawaii share with the ocean.

About 10,000 humpback whales swim to Hawaii every winter to breed and calve. They spend the summer feeding off Alaska and other areas in the northern Pacific. 

The humpback whale is the official marine mammal of Hawaii.
