Main Topic The Global Agenda on Whaling

During a week in which two wandering whales made international headlines, we’ll be discussing other whale related issues including this week’s meeting of the International Whaling Commission in Alaska. Even with a moratorium on commercial whaling in place since 1986, more than two-thousand whales were caught last year. Also, Delta and Dawn, the two humpback whales that took a wrong turn into the Sacramento River, were reportedly spotted last night by a fishing vessel in the Pacific Ocean.

Guests:
Patrick Ramage, Manager of the International Fund for Animal Welfare's Global Whale Program
Glen Inwood, Spokesperson, Institute for Cetacean Research
Justin Cooke, Scientist specializing in whale-population dynamics
Rune Frovik, Secretary of the High North Alliance
