The image most of us have of whalers includes harpoons and intentional trauma. Yet eating commercially caught seafood leads to whales’ entanglement and slow death in rope and nets, and the global shipping routes that bring us readily available goods that often lead to death by collision. In Michael Moore’s new book, We Are All Whalers, he explains that the goal is to help consumers understand what is going on, and what they can do about the problem.
Join Michael as he explains that despite these challenges, he has an optimistic view due to new technologies being developed for ropeless fishing and the acoustic tracking of whale migrations that make a dramatic difference. And he looks ahead with hope as our growing understanding of these extraordinary creatures fuels an ever-stronger drive for change.
