First I must thank Margi Prideaux, Mark Simmonds, Michelle Grady, Sarah
Dolman, Kate O’Connell, Chris Butler-Stroud, Nicolas Entrup, Cathy
Williamson, Jess Feghali-Brown and everyone at WDCS, the Whale and
Dolphin Conservation Society, for their patience during the lengthy gestation
period required to research and write this work. In particular, Alison Wood and
Vanessa Williams at WDCS saw the project through from the beginning and
never stopped giving support and encouragement.
