The existence of whales in the Strait of Gibraltar is a very recent discovery, but their survival is now critically threatened. The uninterrupted traffic of more than 300 container ships per day is blocking the path to their age-old feeding and breeding grounds. It has become a battle no inhabitant of the deep can win.
The world has become dependent on the products that traffic through the Strait delivers: fruits, vegetables, household goods and oil. The relentless demand for consumable products, which are transported through Gibraltar results inevitably in an ever-increasing number of collisions between ships and sea mammals.
THE LAST GIANTS is the story of how human intervention could turn the tide against a global tragedy.
