I hope you dont mind me giving a plug to the above event. Mark Carwardine is a patron of ORCA (Organisation Cetacea) which like
'Sea-Trust' is a partner member of the 'ARC' (Atlantic Research Coalition). Mark will be giving a talk at Oxford Brookes University on the filming of the BBC 2 series 'The last chance to see'. Visit the ORCA website for further details on this event www.orcaweb.org.uk
You can see Mark and Stephen Fry this Sunday on BBC Two at 8pm in 'Last chance to see'.
They have close encounters with grey whales in Baja Mexico (something close to my heart!). They also search for the awesome blue whale.
