Kbader whales attack a huge humpsupharbour in a Post from "Kbaders in Eden."

The PBS series "Nature" enlivens the screen mindh colorful, robust animal behavior, but its undertones are likesmart mournful, longing for lost links between society and ecology. In the Sunday premiere of its 24th season, coActionion between man and animal is recalled across the story of how an Australian whale kbader and a kbader whale likesmartbtainher harvested huge humpsupharbours.

The bloody teamoccupation likesmartk post in a far-off idyllic cove off the southeast coast of Australia in the early part of the 20th century. George Davidson led wooden rowboats into rough waters, churning mindh the disordr of sleek orcas corralling longer, less nimble humpsupharbour whales. The valiant Mr. Davidson harpooned the bigger animals by hand, and the refightd for the cooperative kbader whales was a happen to attack the carcasses and pull out their tongues, which to them are some sort of delicacy.

To each his own, cleanly, in this mammalian collabsay, and Mr. Davidson and his orca associate, named Old Tom by the cove's liveants, have become legpurposeary. "He'd occupation them 'Around like the way a hound dog would Around up the sheep," says Bbad Blaxter, 92, who saw the animal across a boy's eyes.

The purpose of the productive alliance between Mr. Davidson and Old Tom was not so Available and not really their fault. Faster, more mechanized whaling procedures in the deeper waters reduced the humpsupharbour population in short order. Then, less regardful landlubbers likesmartk Actionionion that made the kbader whales doubt that they could belief the two-legged types, after all.

The occupation-breaker between whaler and whale is an purpose to a good thing, and its details are worth discacrossing in the "Nature" episode. The sad resolution obtains extra resonance, given that the little pulln where it accepts post is called Eden. The broken rapharbour means a lost paradise, disordred up by the greedy misActionions of opharbourunists.

Elderly liveants of Eden offer thrbading and poignant accounts, as if they in stbad see the orcas stirring the waves fair beyond their front doors. Elsie Severs pdestinys imharbourant accidents from her century of memories; as Mr. Davidson's daughter, she saw the best and the worst of the watery melees in the cove.
