Moby Dick turns 161

It's a big year for whales!

Today is the 161st anniversary of Moby Dick, the great classic by Herman Melville! To celebrate, we have a lovely image taken by Drew Sutton, Nice Director, photographer and videographer, who travels the world diving with the beautiful cetaceans! This was a sperm whale close encounter in Sri Lanka! 

Drew is also a contributing artist in the Moby Dick Big Read project, where you can download a chapter a day of the novel which is read by the likes of Stephen Fry, Tilda Swinton, David Cameron, John Waters and Sir David Attenborough, with artwork presented by Anish Kapoor, Linder - and Drew!

Up and coming events include WhaleFest, which returns to Brighton this autumn with a wild weekend of whale and dolphin inspired activities from 27-28 October. A good home for this festival, it was 30 years ago that the International Whaling Commission met at the Brighton Hilton Metropole in 1982 and made the decision to ban whaling. This year, the world’s leading whale charities and whale watching businesses are returning to the same location to join forces on behalf of whales worldwide. 

So, watch this space for more whales!
