COMMUNITY ACTION TO PROTECT GRAY WHALE HABITAT
Tis the season to talk about...whales! Gray whales migrate between their feeding grounds in the North Pacific and their mating and calving grounds in Baja Mexico. Southbound gray whales pass the coast of California every December and January and Northbound gray whales and their newborn calves pass by in March and April. With us in the studio to provide this afternoons traffic report to the southbound gray whales and discuss these charismatic mega-fauna, as environmentalists call big animals like whales, is Mark Palmer, Director of the Wildlife Alive Subproject and Assistant Director of the International Marine Mammal Project at Earth Island Institute and Stan Minasian, Communications Director of the Oceanic Society. Joining us on the phone is Serge Dedina, Executive Director of Wildcoast.
