Oregon Winner – Paris Myers
My name is Melody. I’m a humpback whale. My mom named me that because I sing beautiful songs while I’m playing around in the water.
I was born last Spring in the warm waters near Hawaii. We stayed there for a few months and then we swam thousands of miles to Alaska for the winter.
My dad and big brother led the way while my mom, sister and I followed close behind. You should see my dad leap out of the water and slap the waves with his fins!
What a show-off!
My mom says that during the “whaling era” 90% of the humpback whales were eliminated. We’re protected by law now and that makes me very happy!
Thank you for caring about me.
