  4. Thank Jess!!! Glad you have also found your calling in life! It makes a difference when you love what you do eh? Big hugs!

  5. Hello! I am teacher in Lima, Peru and i found the interview made by a british channel (i think) about the blue whale community in Sri Lanka while i was looking for some whale videos to show my students in class.

    I have searched for your blog just to tell you how amazed i am but what you do, i wish i could do just a little bit of what you are doing and also congratulate you and your team on your job to save the whales. I have seen humpback whales close enough to just imagine how amazingly big blue whales can be!!

    You look soooo happy in this interview and i bet your days are full of adventure. Please carry one with everything you are doing and count on a follower and fan here in Peru.
