On April 21st, the episode of Planet Earth III in which we were involved aired in Canada. The segment showcases the vital importance of whales and references our research.

We celebrated with an online event in which members of our team, and the world-acclaimed film crew, discussed the filming process, our Humpback research, and what conservation gains we hope will result from the footage.

The recording of the webinar can now be viewed below.

Please note that, for copyright reasons, we are not able to include the footage from Planet Earth III, Episode 7 in the recording. The full episode can be seen on “Planet Earth” via the providers listed here or on Amazon Prime.

Thank you so much to all who attended this webinar and our in-person event in Port McNeill. It means so much to be able to celebrate with you and feel the interest and support.
