Your Call: What threats do dolphins and other marine mammals face?

Sep 9, 2015

  What threats do dolphins and other marine mammals face? 

On the September 9th edition of Your Call author Susan Casey joins us to talk about her new book Voices in the Ocean, a Journey into the Wild and Haunting World of Dolphins.

After an encounter with a pod of spinner dolphins, Casey set out on a two-year worldwide journey to study these intelligent creatures and our relationship with them. 

She chronicles the many threats dolphins face from captivity and the brutal slaughter in Taiji, Japan, to environmental and sound pollution. What can dolphins teach us? What’s being done to protect them and our oceans?
