Anuar Patjane Floriuk, 'Whale Whisperers' 2016 Editions print
World Press Photo Foundation Editions offers visual journalism fans a chance to own and display work from their favorite prize-winning photographers.
This photo by Mexican photographer Anuar Patjane Floriuk shows a humpback whale and her newborn calf swimming near Roca Partida, the smallest island of the Revillagigedo archipelago, off the Pacific coast of Mexico.
During the mating season, the island waters are home to a large population of humpback whales, and are a popular diving destination. The islands are volcanic and are themselves uninhabited, apart from a small naval presence. They were declared a biosphere reserve in 1994, and are currently under consideration as a UNESCO natural heritage site.
