On today’s show David speaks with Rob Moir, sailor, scientist and founder of the Cambridge Massachusetts based Ocean River Institute. Rob talks about his experiences as a sailor, his first encounter with a right whale and how it changed his life, and the work and meaning of Ocean River. We discuss ocean planning, the fate of whales and how what you put on your lawn could impact marine wildlife. He also explains how he has fun working with politicians to make them into ocean champions.
