Whale Quest Kapalua: Maui, Hawaii
I was lucky enough to attend Whale Quest Kapalua on Maui, Hawaii from February 13-15 this year. It was an amazing event (free to the public) and I hope to be able to attend again next year. One of the things I enjoyed most about this conference was the amazing photos and videos that people brought back from the field. Jason Sturgis showed some unimaginable underwater footage of humpback whales and Adam Ravetch shared excerpts of his upcoming film, "Arctic Giants of the North." There were many informative and educational lectures, as well. To keep tabs on next year's event, visit the Whale Trust web site.
