Your Call: What dangers do whales face today?

Aug 21, 2014

  

On the August 21st, 2014 edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Joshua Horwitz, author of “War of the Whales.” Horwitz looks at the US Navy’s submarine surveillance system that floods the ocean with high-intensity sound. In 2008, the Supreme Court backed the Navy’s use of sonar, in spite of its deadly and effects on whales.

It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
