Going Beneath The Surface
One of the world’s most renowned whale experts, Hauser took up residence on Rarotonga, the largest of the Cook Islands. This way, she could be as close to her work as possible. The 15-island country is home to 21 species of dolphins and whales, more than 600 species of fish, and 16 types of sharks.
On a day just like any other, Hauser suited up and dove into the sapphire water, excited for another day on the job. Just minutes after entering the water, she saw a massive whale emerge from the deep.
