Scene from the film, Entangled.

On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we're rebroadcasting our conversation with Pulitzer Prize-winning environmental reporter David Abel about his new documentary, Entangled. The film chronicles efforts to protect North Atlantic right whales from extinction and the impacts of those efforts on the lobster industry.

There are believed to be fewer than 400 right whales, making them among the planet’s most endangered species. What's being done to save them?

Guest:

David Abel, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter at The Boston Globe and director of Entangled
