Lori’s first guest is Charles Vinick, Executive Director of the Whale Sanctuary Project. Vinick and his colleagues, which included Jean-Michel Cousteau, were instrumental in persuading Russian officials to release 87 captive beluga whales and 10 captive orca whales from small holding pens in Eastern Russia. Vinick gives first hand details of this amazing triumph.
Then, Peter welcomes Larry Laverty to speak about his new book, Power and Majesty – The Plight and Preservation of the African Elephant.
Larry’s exquisite images of elephants in the wild plus detailed descriptions about the challenges they face make for a wonderful book worthy of your attention.
Did you know a group of crows is called a murder, a group of hippos is a thunder and a group of frogs is an army? Enjoy the final segment of the show where Lori challenges us on the names of various animal groups.
