Your Call: Climate change & the history of California’s coasts

Sep 10, 2017

In his new book, The Golden Shore: California's Love Affair with the Sea, marine conservationist David Helvarg takes us on a geographic and cultural journey of the 1,100-mile Pacific coastline.

Helvarg highlights ocean life including whales and sharks, sea otters and elephant seals. What do we need to do to continue protecting California's majestic coastline? We'll also discuss climate change and the fires, floods, and hurricanes happening across the country. Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guest:

David Helvarg, award winning journalist, executive director of Blue Frontier Campaign, and author of  The Golden Shore: California's Love Affair with the Sea
