Whale Guide to Be Available in Russian
"While there's no history of right whale strikes or other conflicts with our fishermen, we all want to leave these endangered species alone and this guide has helped on our side of the Bering Sea...Now that it's being translated into Russian, our comrades on the opposite shore will have the same information on how to avoid them and that translates into better protection of right whales."
- Thorn Smith, an alliance board member
Anchorage, AK - A guide widely used by Alaska fishermen to help them avoid the world's most endangered whale will soon be available in Russian.
The hope is that fishermen on the other side of the Bering Sea will use the guide to avoid the whales, perhaps increasing their chances of not going extinct.
