Books

Discovering Marine Mammals by Nancy Field & Sally Machlis (Dog Eared Publications, 1994). A nature activity book that is both educational and fun. Filled with games, cartoons, trivia and great illustrations.

Dilo Makes Friends by Horace Dobbs (Watch Publishing, 1994). The endearing story of a baby dolphin and his first encounters with humans. Clearly written, with wonderful cartoon illustrations, for children of 8 years and above.

Dolphins by Peter Evans (Whittet Books, 1994). Very readable and well-illustrated introduction to dolphins from one of the world's leading cetacean experts.

Robin Williams in the Wild with Dolphins (In The Wild/PBS, 1994). The inimitable Robin Williams seeks, mimics and swims with dolphins in the Bahamas. Excellent photography, and very funny!

Videos

Whales and Dolphins - Marine Mammal Fund (1985). Plain and simple film footage and underwater sound recordings of different whales and dolphins, including some rare shots of the blue whale and spectacular scenes of spinner dolphins leaping into the air. No music, no commentary - just cetaceans!

In The Company Of Whales - Roger Payne/Discovery (1992). A 90-minute examination of the state of the world's whale populations, including some spectacular footage of humpback whales, and some depressing information about the pollution levels of the St Lawrence River and the effect on the resident beluga population.

The Dolphin Dilemma - Granada (1992). Thoroughly examines (and exposes) the captive dolphin industry, with a lot of input from Ric O'Barry (the former trainer of 'Flipper' turned environmental activist).

Samson and Sally: The Song of the Whales - Celebrity Home Entertainment (1995). Award winning, animated feature film about two young whales in the beautiful, though sometimes dangerous, ocean world. Great for kids of all ages from 5 to 95!
