Still Blue - National Geographic Article
In this month's issue of National Geographic there is a fascinating article on Blue Whales, and in particular a strong pod of whales off the coast of Costa Rica, which was once near extinction. The article provides detailed information about the wondrous species that is the Blue Whale. There is also a series of stunning photos (like the one above showing a diver with a Blue Whale calf) which give an amazing insight into the world's largest ever animal.
