SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME, SOUTHERN RIGHT WHALES HAVE SEASONALLY MIGRATED TO THE SOUTHERN OCEANS OF AUSTRALIA TO GIVE BIRTH TO THEIR YOUNG.

It is in the waters of the Great Australian Bight where towering rock cliffs look over the ocean and the life that swells within it that Elkie was born.


Early one morning when the mist is still rising above the great ocean, Elkie sees something in the distance that she hasn't seen before.


What is it? And what does its presence mean for Elkie and her family?


It isn't a living thing. It groans as it moves closer to Elkie and her family, threatening in its mysterious presence.
