Whales like humans have sophisticated communication systems they rely on to make friends, find a mate and survive. We think they make the perfect protagonist for our story.
We are also committed to protecting these animals and their environments through a monthly contribution to the non-profit organisation Sea Shepherd. And who doesn’t love whales!
