The relationship between humans and cetaceans – whales, dolphins and porpoises – has changed dramatically over the centuries. Where once a lost or stranded whale was hacked to death, now desperate attempts would be made to save it. In this Natural History Museum book, Sarah Lazarus describes the history of whaling; 20th-century efforts to limit the industry; the dire threat of polluted oceans; and the relatively recent interest in ‘close encounters’ with whales and dolphins.
