The third Special Issue of the Journal of Cetacean Research and Management. Special Issues are published from time to time and focus on specific topics. The first and second issues in this series were dedicated to, respectively, Chemical Pollution and Cetaceans (Reijnders et al.,1999) and the Worldwide Status of Right Whales (Best et al., 2001). This issue reports on the status of Southern Hemisphere humpback whales.
