We have our most popular guest on the podcast today, Dr. Naomi Rose. She is a Marine Conservation Advocate who works for the Animal Welfare Institute where she specializes in Whales in Captivity.
Naomi came on the podcast to discuss the plight of wild Orcas of the Southern Resident Population; however, we first got on the topic of Marine Conservation Advocacy and discussed it for a while. It was such great advice and content that I thought I would divide the interview into 2 parts: Today's interview focusing on marine advocacy when it comes to Orcas; and, tomorrow's interview focusing on what is causing the depletion of the Southern Resident Orca population.
If you ever wanted to know what it was like to be a good marine advocate, or an environmental advocate in genera, then this is the episode for you.
Check out the episode and let me know what you think about advocacy in our Facebook Group.
