Australasia – Whale Wisdom Featured


Australasia Scuba Diver features the latest conservation film by Shawn Heinrichs. “Whale Wisdom – Mother Humpback’s View” opens with a mother humpback whale resting below while her calf ascends to the surface and explores the wonders of this strange new world. She offers her calf encouragement and assurance, but also warns of dangers to come. She recalls how commercial whaling all but wiped out many whale species and how even now, over 20 years since the ban on commercial whaling, the killing continues. In her parting thoughts she worries if this year they will take her only child.

Shawn Heinrichs is a conservation filmmaker based in Longmont, Colorado, USA.  To learn more about Shawn and his work, please visit his website, BlueSphereMedia.com.
