They have an interest in whale conservation and have travelled to the Azores, the Great Barrier Reef and Tonga to document sperm, minke and humpback whales.

Pam has photographed 2,500 individual humpbacks in that time. Their images have been included in numerous reference books and Wayne's image of a dwarf minke whale is on the cover of the 2nd edition of Marine Mammals of the World.
