Diving Deeper into the World of Whales: Read Books Written by Our Team
The Whale Trust Team is actively engaged in the world of communicating whale research and educating the community about whales. Books are a great way to communicate deeper information that can’t be conveyed in films or in a Whale Tales presentation. We are proud of what our team has accomplished in the world of publishing, and we look forward to growing our library of offerings soon.

National Geographic photographer, Flip Nicklin, brings you face to face with whales as they communicate, nurse their young, and surface dramatically for air.
