New Book: “Whale Song, Journeys into the Secret Lives of the North Atlantic Humpbacks”

Whale Song: Journeys into the Secret Lives of the North Atlantic Humpbacks has just been published (Lyons Press, November 2011). The author will be on hand for a book signing session after the screening of his award-winning documentary Where the Whales Sing, on Thursday, November 17, 2011, at Bermuda College from 6:30 to 8:30pm in North Hall G301 [see previous post Bermuda Screening of Andrew Stevenson’s “Where the Whales Sing”].

Description: Four years ago, as Andrew Stevenson and his daughter Elsa watched a humpback launch itself out of the water off a Bermudan beach, she asked the question, “Why does a whale breach?” This was the beginning of an interesting and challenging project to film the whales underwater, fifteen miles off shore, in the middle of their migratory crossings. Stevenson’s unique, close-up photographs, video footage, and audio recordings have provided remarkable new evidence of the whales’ migratory lives in the waters around Bermuda, their breeding grounds in the Caribbean and their feeding grounds off the coast of Canada.

Andrew Stevenson has spent over five years and close to 1,000 hours on or in the water observing North Atlantic humpback whales off Bermuda. His work has appeared in The Explorers Journal of the New York Explorers Club and the Society of Marine Mammology. In 2010, Stevenson’s film Where the Whales Sing, won the Best Emerging Underwater Film-maker Award at the Blue Ocean Film Festival.
