Lily, A Gray Whale’s Odyssey Book


“Lily”, with foreword by Jean-Michel Cousteau, creates an odyssey of discovery, wondering, and learning for both adults and children.



In 2010 a gray whale horrifically entangled in gill nets national headlines when she stranded herself inside of Dana Point Harbor. This whale was nicknamed Lily.
