Embark on a journey of a lifetime and explore the world of the magnificent blue whale, the largest animal ever to have lived and a species rebounding from the brink of extinction. Blue whales are the largest animals ever to have lived, bigger than any dinosaur, yet we know surprisingly little about them. From its spectacular feeding habits to the surprising role it plays in the health of our oceans, the film provides an unforgettable window into the lives of these animals—and the extremes scientists must endure to study them.
