On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we’ll speak with Phillip Hamilton, director of Ocean Souls, a stunning documentary that explores the family lives, complex social structures, and high emotional intelligence of whales and dolphins. What's being done to ensure the protection of these incredible animals? What can we learn from them and does our survival depend on what we discover?
