The May 5th show featured a conversation with Liah McPherson and Andy Szabo. They have been in Sitka this spring spending time on Sitka sound surveying and documenting Humpback Whales and Gray Whales.

They are able to track how individual whales gain and lose mass throughout their seasonal feeding, breeding, and migration cycles.
