An award-winning story about fifteen individual humpback whales and their families. Salt & Friends has been produced to show whales as individuals, with distinct (and often hilarious) personalities. Salt is the first whale to be given a name and studied for more than 30 years. During this period of time, she has thrilled whale watchers by bringing a total of ten calves right up to the side of their boats! Each calf has been named and one female calf (Thalassa) has provided Salt with five grandcalves!
Salt is indeed the most sighted and most loved whale in the world. Over the years, millions of whale watchers have ventured offshore for a chance to meet this amazing and awe-inspiring humpback whale. You will meet several humpback whale families and learn how scientists identify individuals! Children and adults find it to be entertaining and educational. Recommended for ages 5 and older. An excellent educational tool for teachers to provide a new way to think about whales.
