Whales of Sydney documents the annual migration of whales past the coast of Sydney through spectacular photography. Their behaviours and the interaction between them and us humans who watch them have changed our understanding of their importance and the need to protect them.
Every year thousands of Humpback whales migrate past Australia as they head from their summer eeding grounds, in Antarctic waters, to their winter breeding grounds closer to the equator. Their journey takes them past the Iconic city of Sydney where they can be seen for about six months of the year from mid-May to the beginning of December. Sydney has one of the longest Humpback whale migrations and sees a large number of whales swimming past its shores with an estimated number of more than 30.000 individuals for the 2018 season.
With every book or piece of artwork you purchase you help to protect and care for whales and other wildlife in Australia. Jonas will donate a percentage of each purchase to ORRCA, Australia’s most successful whale rescue organisation. So every time you go through the Book Whales Of Sydney or look at one of our artworks, you can remind yourself that you have supported a good cause.
ORRCA (Organisation for the Rescue and Research of Cetaceans in Australia) is the most experienced and successful whale rescue organisation in Australia. ORRCA receives limited grants but otherwise relies on income from memberships, donations and workshops to keep the hotline and the organisation functioning. Read more about ORRCA
