Listen to PatZi's interview with Brian Skerry - April 20, 2021
Secret of the Whales
Brian Skerry is amazing! He's the Whale Whisper...or the Godfather of the Whales. Few people have experienced the absolute JOY of being so up close and personal with these magnificent animals. It was meant to be! He saved his first whale when he was just a young guy who didn't know how dangerous it was to jump in and save a baby whale caught in a fisherman's net. Where others would have hesitated, Brian just jumped in and saved the whale. He is a real hero -- and his love for whales has made him the perfect choice to do this beautiful National Geographic book.
Brian Skerry, who has explored and documented oceans for over four decades, has captured these alluring creatures in all their glory--and shares his enthusiasm for these majestic creatures that teach us about ourselves and our planet. In addition to the beautiful photographs as lot of research into their behavior, from unique dialects to matriarchal society.
You will want to order more than one book. One for your coffee table and then more to give away. A great gift for Mother's Day and Father's Day -- it is wonderful to read about animals who love their babies and band together as a family.
It was wonderful to talk to Brian -- he is a real inspiration. When he was a teenager he made a decision to become a National Geographic photographer -- and with hard work and dedication, he did it. Not only that, he has won many awards over the years doing a 'job' that he loves. I hope his story will inspire others to follow their dreams.
