    Saving Whales in the Digital Age

    Saving Whales in the Digital Age

    Every year off the coast of California, Oregon, and Washington, approximately 18 blue whales, 22 humpbacks, and 43 fin whales are hit and killed by ships. On the east coast of the United States, it is estimated that nearly a third of all right whale deaths are caused by vessel strikes.

    We speak to two groups who are trying to find solutions to this issue. Join us now for this whale of a tale of Saving Whales in the Digital Age. The University of California Santa Barbara’s Benioff Ocean Initiative's Whale Safe, and Ship Speed Watch - a project from Oceana and Global Fishing Watch.

    Guest include:
    Morgan Visalli, a Marine scientist at the Benioff ocean initiative at the University of California, Santa Barbara
    Briana Adams, an assistant professor at the University of Washington who studies how climate change and environmental variability, and human activities impact top predators on land and in the ocean.
    Whitney Webber, I'm the campaign director for responsible fishing at Oceana.
