Humpback Whale Nursery

  • Rating: TV-PG
Researcher Oswaldo Vasquez swims with humpback whales in the blue waters of the Silver Banks Marine Reserve in the Dominican Republic, which is a nursery for humpback whale calves. The calves rely on the warmth created by the water’s interaction with the sun’s photons. This interaction also causes the ocean to be a deep blue color.
