The MCHH crew discuss two whale-centric stories that happened in the past week.

1) Russia bans captivity of Cetaceans (orcas and belugas) after drone footage went viral of hundreds of cetaceans were found in small pens awaiting to be shipped to various dolphinariums and sea parks throughout Russia and China. A policy-window opened up and government researchers, Russian cetacean activists and scientists of the IWC worked to get the regulation passed.


2) The Northern Right Whale Consortium Meeting - @MarineBrit attended the meeting to listen to presentations and discuss the future of the Endangered Northern Right Whale.
