According to recent reports, Humpback Whales have returned to the New York Harbor for the first time in over a hundred years. Learn all about it in this short audio segment from our friends at WNYC.

For the first time in a century, humpback whales have returned to the waters of New York City. The first sightings began around 2010, and one tour group has been taking passengers out to see them. The whales come to feed before migrating south to Caribbean waters for the winter.
