Pixel Planet Today's post

Humpback whales are some of the largest animals on the planet. They can eat a ton (easily), but for most of the year, they don't actually eat at all. . Fact: Pacific humpback whales live off their fat reserves for 5.5 to 7.5 months at a time, only eating when they reach their summer feeding grounds. The journey, some 3,000 miles, is one of the longest migrations in the world. So unsurprisingly, when they finally make it to their destination, they gorge. The whales can eat 3,000 pounds of krill a day, all just to fatten up and make the journey again once the summer comes to a close. . Today is World Wildlife Day! Of course, we're all about conserving the environment, but we definitely have a soft spot when it comes to our planet's wildlife. We love sharing facts about animals and raising an appreciation for the Earth's habitats. If you're looking for a way to celebrate the day (other than scanning our posts 😉), take some time to go outside and enjoy your local wildlife. Planting native trees and vegetation can benefit local species immensely, or even donating to a local environmental organization. . . Read more facts about whales:
