In August – September 2013, I traveled with a group of eight University of Oregon journalism students along the coast of Uruguay. We followed the Route of the Whale, learning along the way about the complex environmental and social issues of Uruguay. Through our work with the Organización para la Conservación de Cetaceos, we documented whale migration and the factors that affect it along the route.
I created this video as the introduction to the Route of the Whale, which will appear soon on our website featuring multimedia content from along the route. The video establishes the importance of the OCC and its goal of making the Route of the Whale and social impacts on marine life more widely known and discussed throughout Uruguay.
