Details

Celebrated National Geographic photographer, Brian Skerry, has spent nearly four decades exploring and documenting the world’s oceans. For his latest project, he turns his lens to one of the world’s most beloved animals to illuminate groundbreaking new insights into their lives and culture. Skerry spent more than two years in 24 locations around the world, capturing remarkable images and video for a landmark National Geographic book, magazine story and television series, Secrets of the Whales.

Hear his behind-the-scenes stories and get an inside look at the groundbreaking science of whale culture – and its startling human parallels – across four different species. Discover the international cuisines and hunting techniques of orca pods and the multi-generational childcare systems of sperm whales. Explore the culture of singing competitions among humpback whales and meet charming beluga whales in Canada that journey each summer to their ‘vacation resort.’ Through Skerry’s mesmerizing work, uncover what these majestic creatures can teach us about ourselves and our planet.
