CONSERVATION CAST E. 39 with Colleen Weiler for Whale and Dolphin Conservation
During this episode of the Conservation Cast, Maya spoke with Colleen about WDC’s dependency on individual donations as well as their Adopt a whale program, allowing those who adopt a specific whale to receive monthly updates on their sightings and wellbeing through tracking and identification. These check-ups also inform adoptees of what WDC is doing to help protect whales and dolphins and their homes. Colleen discussed her science background and the steps she took in order to get involved in the policy side of things, working on laws and regulations that can either protect or help recover endangered populations. Collen answered an array of viewer-sent questions such as how WDC helps to bring an end to captivity as well as how they prevent whaling on a global scale.
