We think kids have an enormous voice - and the power to change the world. So it only makes sense that we would take the local children of Tonga - to see one of the most amazing animals in their sea. By helping them meet the creatures they are tasked with protecting, we know we are creating the next generation of whale warriors. Even more poignant, the whales we swam with are the very same whales we defend in the Antarctic - and have been protected during their winter months in Tonga's whale sanctuary for the last several decades. Watch a day that changed lives - for the kids, the whales and the shepherds.
Special thanks to the Na'ia, Rob Barrell, and Sione Tupouniua for making this possible.
