Next message: IMS: "Challenge Question #3"
Bringing other breeds of whale from various feeding grounds together
into the breeding ground is good, because they can become social with
other whales and offer shelter to new mothers and calves. Also, for
food catching. A large mixed population of whales is good for breeding
purposes in order to limit inbreeding, so mothers don't breed with their
calves and therefore, to keep the gene pool strong.
