Soon, very soon, this blog will start to be filled with all things whale and dolphin related. In just over two weeks I’ll be setting off on the first leg of my three month trip to volunteer with and write about three whale and dolphin conservationists.
Some when between now and 15th April when I leave, I’ll find time amongst the planning, packing and general chaos of leaving preparations to write some background about this whole ambitious trip. Things like:
- How on earth did it all come about?
- Who am I going to work for and why am I going to work for them?
- What am I going to write about these people and why?
In the meantime, check out my ‘Top Ten Things to Take on a Whale or Dolphin Watching Trip’ on the Planet Whale website for a little cetacean appetiser.
By the way, ‘cetacean’ is going to crop up rather a lot from now on, so for anyone wondering what on earth one is, here’s what the dictionary has to say about it:
Cetacean (noun) = a large sea mammal that has a streamlined body with forelimbs modified as flippers, no hind limbs, and a blowhole on the back, e.g. a whale or a dolphin. Order: Cetacea
