A WILD Connection Listened to “Song of the Whale” in Riviera Nayarit
“There are few animals on this planet as mysterious and charismatic as humpback whales.” This is the beginning of “Song of the Whale”, the third episode of A WILD Connection that was filmed in Riviera Nayarit.
James Currie, the famous host of this show and wildlife expert, traveled to this coast a few months ago to discover, together with ecotourism guide Javier Álvarez, the mysteries of these aquatic giants and their deep connection with humans.
Male humpback whales sing the longest and most complex songs in the animal kingdom, which consist of a series of hisses, screeches and deep voiced calls divided into “verses” sung in a specific order that can last up to 30 minutes, something that can be appreciated and known in this program.
Although the song of the whales is the main topic of this documentary, during the scenes you can see places such as the Marietas Islands and Punta de Mita.
A WILD Connection is a collaboration between National Geographic, TV host/producer James Currie and renowned cinematographer Josh Liberman. The show offers a unique perspective on the links between people and wildlife.
