Today, National Geographic has released the companion book to the upcoming Disney+ Original series “Secrets Of The Whales”.
This provocative book of photography offers bold new insight into the lives of the world’s largest mammals, along with their complex societies. In these pages, we learn that whales share an amazing ability to learn and adapt to opportunities, from specialized feeding strategies to parenting techniques. There is also evidence of deeper, cultural elements of whale identity, from unique dialects to matrilineal societies to organized social customs like singing contests.
Featuring the arresting underwater images of Brian Skerry, who has explored and documented oceans for over four decades, this book will document these alluring creatures in all their glory–and demonstrate how these majestic creatures can teach us about ourselves and our planet.
“Brian Skerry?s magnificent photographs illustrate intimate moments in the lives of whales. Sentient and highly intelligent, passing on tradition to their young, forming lasting bonds between family members. So like us.?―Jane Goodall
“In this extraordinary book, Brian Skerry blows the lid off everything we thought we knew about whales. You will treasure it forever.”―Sigourney Weaver
All four episodes of “Secrets Of The Whales” will be coming to Disney+ on Earth Day, Thursday 22nd April.
The book is priced at $34.99 and is available from a variety of different retailers including Amazon,
