"The Secret Domain of the Gray Whale"
This presentation will take you on the water for a 7000-mile journey as you learn what we have in common with gray whales. We will go out in 20-foot open boats to meet 45-foot, 40-ton animals in their natural habitat in the only place on earth where such wild animals routinely seek human contact. You will enter their secret domain and see behaviors most of the world will never be aware of and become familiar with the mystical connection between these animals and man that has existed for almost 10,000 years. It is all about one-on-one personal contact with the largest creatures on the planet. Dorsey will show high-def digital images, videos, and tell personal stories from his latest book, "THE LAGOON," his memoir of the two plus decades he worked eye to eye with these giants in Baja.
