Humpback Highway


Acclaimed wildlife scientist Vanessa Pirotta has been mugged by whales, touched by a baby whale and covered in whale snot.

In Humpback Highway, she dives beneath the surface to reveal the mysterious world of humpback whales. Her book details their life cycle and the challenges humans present, and tells us why whale snot and poo are important for us and the ocean.

She also explains the cutting-edge new technologies that allow us to see where humpbacks swim, to listen to them talk and to spy on them underwater.

Whether a whale lover or simply curious about the underwater world, Humpback Highway will inspire and give you a new respect for these majestic, marine giants.
