Your Call: How can we protect our marine ecosystem?

Sep 20, 2015

On the September 21st edition of Your Call, we’ll take a look at the spectacular gathering of marine mammals along the California cost in Monterey Bay. 

Every year, the Bay welcomes hundreds of marine mammals, which visit its waters in search of food, but this year, warm waters and the Bay’s healthy eco-system have attracted an incredible number of whales, dolphins, sea otters, and birds. How can communities, scientists and conservationists create a healthy marine ecosystem? Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you?

Guests:

Jim Harvey, Director of Moss Landing Marine Laboratories 

Paul Michel, superintendent of Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary

Doris Welch, marine biologist and co-owner of  Sanctuary Cruises Whale Watching
