11 November 2015
No Comments
Have you ever wondered why a narwhal has a tusk? How sperm whales catch squid in the deep dark ocean? Which whale has the biggest tail, lives the longest, and holds the world migration record? Did you know that scientists believe that whale feces is a greater nitrogen source than all the rivers that flow into the gulf of Maine? Whale "waste" results in great plant plankton blooms in the ocean that produce the oxygen we breath, slow climate change and help create more productive fisheries.

Zack Klyver is a lead guide for the Bar Harbor Whale Watch Company. His presentation is based on a draft of a book he is writing about the top ten most amazing things about whales. Whenever possible Zack will use his own personal stories and reflections from twenty five years of guiding marine mammal tours around the world.
