    Dear Sara,

    That question has already been answered right here on Whalenet several
    times.
    Please use the search function and search for "all whale species". A google
    search for "new whale species" will give you the latest information.

    You are most welcome,

    Dr T Ford

    Dear Dr. Ford,

    My name is Sara and I am in the 3rd grade. Our Class is studying whales. I
    have

    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
    species

    are Baleen whales and there are some 71 if not more species of toothed
    whales.

    I am looking for a web site that actually lists all of these whales by name/
    species.

    I know you must be a very busy scientist and I do not want to take up your
    valuable

    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
    each different

    type of whale.

    Also.. I would like to know what you personally find most fascinating about
    whales.

    Thank you for your help,

    Sincerely,

    Sara Murray
