Today’s guest on the show is Dr. Frances Gulland, senior scientist at the Marine Mammal Center, and a member of the International Committee for the Recovery of the Vaquita. This committee is composed of the world’s top vaquita experts, and they just released a new report which contains some shocking revelations.
Before we jump into our interview with Frances however, I’m going to check in with EOC producer Sean Bogle to get an update on our vaquita documentary project, Souls of the Vermilion Sea. We have a new half hour film associated with this project that we are about to release, and Sean’s here to explain the inspiration behind this new release as well as our outreach goals moving forward.
