Alexandra Morton, an orca communication and behavior scientist turned salmon activist, returns to the Whale Scout podcast to discuss her just-released new book, “Not on My Watch: How A Renegade Whale Biologist Took On Governments and Industry To Save Wild Salmon.” An engaging speaker and storyteller, Alexandra shares the emotional, dynamic ongoing struggle to remove Atlantic salmon farms out of the wild, rugged, and resilient waterways that support the communities of British Columbia, Canada, including First Nations. Led to Canada by the orcas, ultimately the work of Alexandra Morton continues to protect the whales through the protection of wild salmon so desperately needed by both the whales and people of the coast.
