About the Author:

Jim Nollman was born in Boston in 1947 and graduated from Tufts University in 1969. He has been a composer of music for theater, an internationally distinguished conceptual artist, and an environmental activist. He is the founder of Interspecies Inc. (IC), which sponsors research for communicating with animals through music and art, and whose best-known field project is a 25-year communication study using live music to interact with the wild orcas on the west coast of Canada. He is currently directing a project in Arctic Russia to communicate with and protect the last beluga whales in Europe.

Nolman's essays are anthologized in several collections of nature writing. He is contributing editor of the largest whale site on the Internet, with 10,000 visitors a day.

Review:

Jim Nollman is a welcome antidote to the dispassionate approach of much modern biology. He gets involved and we are all the wiser for it.
--Lyall Watson, author of Beyond Supernature





Nollman is skeptical enough to ask the tough questions and open enough to recognize the answers. His approach is a model for what modern science can and should be.
--Eric Utne, Utne Reader




A must-read for all those who ever wanted to talk to the animals.
--Ric O’Barry, author of To Free a Dolphin



Reading Jim Nollman is like leaving a stuffy house and going out into the open air. Powered by a Renaissance mind, this book ranks with Sheldrake’s work on dogs and Goodall’s on chimps. Above all, it’s damn fun to read.
--Steven Foster, author of The Roaring of the Sacred River



Jim Nollman is an extraordinarily able writer whose gift lies in his ability to see both the internal and external worlds clearly and describe them honestly. That sounds simple but it’s very rare.
--Hardy Jones, director of BV.org.



Jim Nollman has long been a visionary and passionate advocate for the cetaceans, as an activist, spiritual ecologist and interspecies artist. Here he describes his ground-breaking musical conversations with the sea-people—and urges a return to the nature-reverencing attitude of indigenous people. His inspired and inspiring work points the way to a healing of our fractured civilization.
--Ralph Metzner, Ph.D., author of Green Psychology



Here Jim Nollman not only takes us along on his unique adventures in interspecies communication. He also helps us to reclaim our own wider nature, our interexistence with all beings. This book opens the windows of the soul, lets wild and cleansing life pour in, to invigorate and guide us in a hard time. His Interspecies Protocol brings a strong and distinctive contribution to our understanding of what it will take to build a just and sustainable world.
--Joanna Macy, author of Widening Circles, A Memoir




Jim Nollman's musical gifts and practiced intuition have taken him to that place known to indigenous peoples, a few ethologists, and very young children, where animals and humans converse and play together as part of one sentient universe. Think of him as a modern-day shaman or a missionary from other species, sent to invite our friendship and deepen our understanding of the world we share with all life.
--Aina Barten, Associate Editor, Orion Magazine




The Man Who Talks to Whales is an inspiring, thought-provoking testament that moves us closer to a common voice between homo sapiens and other species. Jim Nollman's fascinating personal experiences among orcas, dolphins, gray whales—even tom turkey and buffalo!—blend into a universal, and critical, message for 21st-century consciousness.
--Dick Russell, author of Eye of the Whale
