First Footage of Nursing Blue Whale Calf
Filmmaker and expedition leader Patrick Dykstra captured the first-ever footage of a nursing blue whale calf near Sri Lanka
'2015 was perhaps the best season yet', Dykstra said on his Facebook page, delivering 'the world's first images of a baby blue whale feeding from its mother, as well as aerial video of live pygmy sperm whales that have never been filmed before'.
The filmmaker hopes the ongoing during the expeditions will improve the 'understanding of these animals and ability to protect them'.
Dykstra's video also includes footage of dolphins, sperm whales, a blue marlin and sea turtles:
