In The Secret Life of Whales she reveals the little-known world of these giants of the deep, taking us from Australia to Antarctica and beyond. With her infectious enthusiasm for these magnificent creatures. Mich shares her insights into how whales live - how they migrate, feed, breed and look after their young - and her world-leading conservation work.
