About this book

Considered by early whalers the 'right' whale to kill, no species better illustrates the damage done by humans to the great whales. This slow, plankton-feeding giant is amoung the most critically endangered of all mammals. In this beautifully illustrated book, whale biologist Phil Clapman introduces the three species, and assesses the prospects for their recovery.
