As Andrew Stevenson and his young daughter Elsa watched a 50-ton humpback launch itself out of the water off a Bermudan beach, she asked, 'Why does a whale breach?' This was the spark behind the challenge to film the whales underwater that became an overriding passion. The first to admit he is not a marine biologist, Stevenson's "Humpback Whale Film and Research Project" has nonetheless provided remarkable scientific evidence of the whales' lives in Bermudan waters as well as their Caribbean breeding sites and Canadian feeding grounds. It has also resulted in this heart-warming, insightful tale of Stevenson's journeys with these awe-inspiring creatures.show more

About Andrew Stevenson

Andrew Stevenson has spent over five years and over 1,000 hours on or in the water observing North Atlantic humpback whales off Bermuda. Born in Canada, he spent his childhood in Hong Kong, India, Scotland, Malaysia and Singapore. As an economist working for the United Nations Development Programme, he was assigned to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, where he remained after his two-year stint, obtaining his pilot's licence and starting a safari company in the Selous Game Reserve. His work on humpback whales has appeared in The Explorers Journal of the New York Explorers Club and he has co-authored scientific papers for the Society of Marine Mammology on his groundbreaking observations and data on the North Atlantic humpback. Andrew is the author of A Nepalese Journey, a photographic volume, and five travel narratives on Nepal, New Zealand, Norway and Australia. He lives in Bermuda with his Kiwi wife Annabel and their daughters Elsa and Somers.show more
