“They say the sea is cold,” D.H. Lawrence wrote, “but the sea contains the hottest blood of all.” Whales aren’t just physically majestic, but as warm-blooded mammals who give birth to live young, they provide a human link to an underwater region that can often feel so alien. Still, between the last vestiges of whale hunting and newer threats like oil spills and noise pollution, human beings remain the greatest threat to the survival of whales. The amazing images captured by Charles Nicklin should serve as a reminder that whales, as much as we do, deserve life on this blue planet. Check out his photo gallery here.
