In our new episode we speak with Kathi George, Director of Cetacean Conservation for California’s Marine Mammal Center. As a founder of California Whale Rescue, Kathi has been involved in half a dozen at sea ‘disentanglements’ of gray, humpback and orca whales trapped by fishing gear as well as 50 sea lion rescues from fishing line and plastic debris. She tells us about how it’s done, the dangers (people have been injured and killed), precautions and rewards of whale wrangling, and what we can all do to protect whales.
