"Whales in Crisis" - National Geographic Documentary

Come meet our friend from Greenpeace, Erin Hickok, who will update us on the current international whaling situation, as well as give us a brief history of whaling and the International Whaling Commission. She will also cover a current campaign and have information on how people can get more involved. Whales are crucial to the ecosystem of our bioregion and true asset of beauty in Puget Sound, everyone should come out for this event!

We'll also have some prizes you can win and organic beer and wine to go along with snacks, and a great company of people that care!

Few creatures are as mysterious and captivating as the whale. Few connect with us so emotionally and spiritually. After hunting whales for generations, we have brought their widespread slaughter to an end, but these graceful giants still face threats on a number of fronts, and the battle to save them goes on.

The film takes an intimate look at four types of whales: pilots, humpbacks, bowheads and orcas, through the eyes of the humans who are closest to them. From the struggle to save a pod of pilot whales in the Florida Keys to the groundbreaking work of a scientist risking life and limb in the Arctic to the controversy over military sonar, the Special takes us to the front lines of whale conservation.
