As Long As There Are Whales
Evelyne Daigle

Tundra Books

A noted biologist and educator with a passion for whales, and a well-known wildlife artist who counts whales among his favourite subjects teamed up to create As Long As There Are Whales. Evelyne Daigle, who serves as a consultant at the Montreal Biodome, discusses the various whales which migrate annually to the St. Lawrence River. She deals thoroughly with a variety of topics, ranging from how scientists study these mysterious creatures to what humans can do to help save them from becoming extinct. In closing, readers can practice identifying whales by matching pictures and descriptions. Daniel Grenier captures the essence of these creatures in detailed acrylic illustrations. A list of resources including books, films, and web sites is provided. This title was first published in French as Tant qu’il y aura des baleines. mRb
