Plymiwch i ddyfroedd dwfn y morfilod mawr gyda’r cadwraethwr Chris Vick. Yn The Last Whale, mae Chris yn adrodd hanes y teulu Kristensen, wrth iddyn nhw newid o fod yn lladdwyr i fod yn gadwraethwyr. Hanes eu teulu wrth i helwyr morfilod esblygu’n genhadaeth i achub y morfilod mawr a’n planed. Mae Chris yn defnyddio ei flynyddoedd ei hun o brofiad yn gweithio i elusen cadwraeth morfilod a dolffiniaid i ddod â’r antur swynol, llawn gweithredu hwn yn fyw, gyda galwad amgylcheddol bwerus i weithredu.
