    Up close and personal with a humpback. The Dominican Republic’s Silver Bank is in a square-mile marine sanctuary (now expanded as part of the “Sanctuary for the Marine Mammals of the Dominican Republic”) located about 50 miles north of the island. A large population of North Atlantic humpbacks gather here each winter and spring to mate and calf from the months of January through April. Hundreds of dolphins and several pilot whales and false killer whales (members of the dolphin family) held in tanks around the world were taken from places such as Russia, Korea, the Solomon Islands, Cuba, and Taiji, Japan. There are also scores of wild-caught beluga whales, mostly from Russian waters. Welcome to our Class Family Website! This site will serve as our weekly newsletter, provide details about academics, share photos of the whales, and disseminate PTA information. The Willing Whales had an exceptional first day! We learned so much about being a safekeeper at school and becoming part of a helpful class family! Just keep swimming! We are working from home and our work is still ongoing. If you would like to adopt, donate, or shop to help protect whales and dolphins around the world, we are currently still mailing orders! Email [email protected] if you have any questions.
