Whales of the Mediterranean
Sea StoriesStreaming Video - 2013
When you think of the Riviera in summer, you probably imagine beaches, bikinis, paparazzi - not fin whales. But think again, because this region attracts a wide range of mammals. Each summer, dozens of whales swim to the Liguria Sea, a triangle of water surrounded by France, Italy, and Corsica. Margherita Zanardelli made a surprising discovery about the fin whales of the Mediterranean: they are genetically distinct from the rest of their species. Fin whales are the second largest animals in the world, and the fastest of all whales. Margherita is leading the fascinating effort to help these unique creatures thrive. Meet this extraordinary, large, but mostly unresearched, enigmatic species.
