Adelina’s Whales

The great migration of the Pacific Grey Whales lead right to the bayside home of ten year old Adelina Mayoral. Her remote village attracts scientists; celebrities and tourists who come to see the whales and sometimes even touch them. In the shallow waters of Mexico’s Laguna San Ignacio some of the 40-ton animals actually come so close to the small whale watching boats that visitors can actually stroke their rubbery skin and scratchy barnacles. This is one of the few places on earth where wild animals approach humans for contact. The story of Adelina’s Whales shares the ocean world of these marine mammals and the Mexican families that host them every year.
