Dear Dr. Ford,
My name is Sara and I am in the 3rd grade. Our Class is studying whales. I
been reading and learning lots of interesting facts about whales. I have
learned that there are
about 82 species of whales including dolphins. Eleven of these 82 or so
are Baleen whales and there are some 71 if not more species of toothed
I am looking for a web site that actually lists all of these whales by name/
I know you must be a very busy scientist and I do not want to take up your
time making me a list of all the types of whales. But if you could direct me
to a web
site or sites that give a list then I will be able to learn something about
type of whale.
Also.. I would like to know what you personally find most fascinating about
Thank you for your help,
