"The WhaleClub website serves to increase awareness towards marine mammals and the oceans they live in. Dolphins, Whales, and Manatees are ambassadors of the aquatic community. Their graceful movements, child-like play, and willingness to interact with humans have captured the hearts of individuals around the world...both young and old. We hope the website will become a "gathering place for marine mammal enthusiasts" so that we may all share experiences and learn more about our fragile oceans and the lives they support...including our own."
