Burp! The Humpback Whale
Locally authored, illustrated, designed and printed children's book - written by Mark Simmons, the first Marine Park Ranger on the Great Barrier Reef who kickstarted the reef's first humpback whale research program in the mid-80s.
Humpback whales are known as the singing whales – their choruses of squeaks and squeals are iconic in the natural world. But a new kind of humpback whale has just taken up residence on the Great Barrier Reef. He is big and friendly, and his name is Burp!
As Burp journeys up the Far North Queensland coastline, he meets other iconic Aussie wildlife and discovers lots of other strange noises and sounds.
