The whales are back!
"An adult humpback whale did a "beautiful" fluke up dive in front of excited crew and passengers on Pacific Whale Foundation's vessel Ocean Voyager at 7:36 am this morning (Saturday, October 5, 2013). This is Pacific Whale Foundation's first verified humpback whale sighting of the season off Maui."
Age of Man
The series is titled Age of Man and hopes to present a new look at humankind's relationship with the natural world. Passion Pictures will use the most advanced 'blue chip' filming techniques to provide visuals akin to natural history event programming although in this series they will turn the camera around to show the world as it really is "with us in it".

New book by Whalesong Board Member David Rothenberg
We just wanted to let you know that “Bug Music: How Insects Gave Us Rhythm and Noise” by philosopher and musician David Rothenberg, is on sale now! In looking at cicadas, as well as other humming, clicking, and thrumming insects, Bug Music is the first book to consider the radical notion that we humans learned rhythm, synchronization, and dance from the panoply of insect sounds that has surrounded us for millions of years. Publishers Weekly raves, “The author’s wide-ranging musical interests…together with his playful, almost romantic approach to the subject helps engage general readers.
Rothenberg provides in-depth research and writing on the relationship between human and animal music as he interviews researchers and scientists, explores the exotic insect markets of Shanghai, and plays his saxophone as an accompaniment to an orchestra of crickets. Kirkus says “adventurous audiophiles will catch Rothenberg’s bug for insect-music appreciation.”
