I am doing research on whales for school and I would like to know if you 
could answer a question. "What are the three closest relatives to the 
whale?" If you can help me I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you,

By running a search thru WhaleNet (, you should be 
able to find information on relatives of whales. By that question, I assume 
you mean relatives on land?  The closest land relatives are the ungulates 
(cows and pigs).
