If you’ve never been to the Kimberley in Western Australia before, this documentary on Sunday on the National Geographic channel, will whet your appetite. Thousands of humpback whales arrive at this time each year to calve, with the area from Broome to the thousands of islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago their target.
Birthplace of the Giants follows whale researchers Curt and Micheline Jenner as they travel to the remote Humpback whale breeding grounds in Western Australia’s Kimberley region.
Using the latest aerial camera quadcopters and night vision technology they capture never-before-seen footage of the secret life of this enigmatic creature.
Follow the project before its premiere via the Facebook and website to discover everything from humpback whale anatomy to behind-the-scenes vision from the film. The crew’s expedition log is set to unlock with new pages each day for a week leading up to the premiere on June 7 Nat Geo Wild.
