Diving with Beaked Whales (2009), Canary Islands, Spain - Beaked whales are the most mysterious of all marine mammals. So far, there are about 20 species known around the world. Mark Johnson of the Wood’s Hole Oceanographic Institution has designed a non-invasive way to study these elusive toothed whales using a device called the DTAG. We join Mark, Natacha Aguilar de Soto and their team on El Hierro in the Canary Islands, Spain, as they search for beaked whales to study their movements, habitat use and vocalizations.
 
Expedition Vaquita (2008/2009), Mexico - In October-November 2008, we joined scientists in Mexico from NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center (USA)  and Instiuto Nacional de Ecología in Mexico on “Expedition Vaquita”, documenting the search for the Vaquita porpoise – the smallest and most endangered marine mammal on the planet. This program was nominated for the 2008 ACE/Discovery Channel / Silverdocs Film Festival “work in progress” award. Press coverage.

Whales of the Mediterranean Sea (2007/2008), Spain, Italy, Greece - This five-part online documentary film examines the state of cetaceans and the conservation issues various species face throughout the ancient Mediterranean Sea. In October 2008, “Whales of the Mediterranean Sea” was launched in 6 languages at the IUCN World Congress in Barcelona, Spain as part of Conservation Cinema and has featured at a number of environmental film festivals around the world.

  1. Mediterranean - The Sea in the Middle of the Earth (9 minutes) - In a region not often associated with wildlife, the Mediterranean Sea is a haven for a range of remarkable cetacean species. Four hundred million people share the precious marine resources of the Mediterranean, yet minimal opportunities exist to encounter cetaceans in the wild. Will increasing pressures cause cetaceans to disappear as we are just getting to know them?  
  2. Sperm Whales of Greece - Life in the Trenches (18 minutes) - "Life in the Trenches" documents a scientific expedition through Greece in search of the elusive and endangered Mediterranean Sperm Whale. We join Dr. Alexandros Frantzis of the Pelagos Cetacean Research Institute, onboard the R/V Nereis on a journey into the deepest trenches of the Mediterranean. In the Ionian Sea, we discover a socializing sperm whale family, and study their behavior as they welcome a newborn calf into the group. However, the future for this calf, and its family is uncertain. As their habitat deteriorates due to human pressures, what does the future hold for the most social of the great whales?  
  3. Fishy Business - The Illegal Drifnet Fishery (14 minutes) - Despite a worldwide ban by the United Nations in 1992 and by the European Union in 2002, the illegal driftnet fishery continues throughout the Mediterranean Sea. Driftnets are banned because they take large quantities of unwanted catch, called bycatch, putting populations of migratory fish, sea turtles and cetaceans at risk. We interview Xavier Pastor of Oceana, a global marine conservation organization. He leads a team of scientists, photographers, and videographers who are systematically documenting the use of illegal driftnets throughout the Mediterranean. With over 500 driftnet vessels operating illegally in the region, researchers and conservation groups are concerned that marine species are being pushed to the edge. In this episode, we investigate the fishery and examine why it still occurs today.
  4. Disappearing Dolphins (16 minutes) - Common dolphins were once abundant throughout the Mediterranean Sea. Today they are declining rapidly, surviving only in portions of their former range. In western Greece, the sea around the island of Kalamos is their last stronghold, or at least it used to be. So why are the dolphins disappearing?  We interview Giovanni Bearzi, the President of the Tethys Research Institute in Italy, and a Pew Fellow in Marine Conservation. Giovanni has been studying coastal dolphins in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea for two decades. What began as a study on the ecology and behavior of common dolphins around Kalamos, became a systematic record of their demise. Only 30 kilometers away from Kalamos is the Amvrakikos Gulf where coastal bottlenose dolphins are thriving. Why is there such a drastic difference in the health of these two dolphin populations?  We meet two local fishermen and discuss their relationship with dolphins and the state of sea around their community. Could what is happening to the common dolphins of Kalamos, also explain why they are disappearing throughout the Mediterranean Sea.

Sanctuaries of the Sea - Are Marine Protected Areas for Cetaceans a Solution? (18 minutes) - What does it mean to save whales, dolphins and porpoises if their habitat is left unprotected? Marine Protected Areas, also known as MPAs or Marine Sanctuaries, are the equivalent of national parks and protected areas on land.  Erich Hoyt is an author and senior research fellow for WDCS, the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society. He feels that creating MPAs for cetaceans can have a far-reaching impact in conserving other species, and whole ecosystems.  Marine scientists Ana Cañadas and Ric Sagarminaga work in the Alboran Sea off the coast of southern Spain. They are identifying critical habitats for migratory species while working with various local groups whose livelihoods depend on a healthy sea. However, can establishing MPAs protect cetaceans from all human pressures? We interview Cristina Fossi, a marine toxicologist from the University of Siena, Italy, whose work highlights the extreme levels of pollution in Mediterranean cetaceans. Our final program of the series, Whales of the Mediterranean Sea, explores whether whales, dolphins and porpoises can be the catalyst in protecting marine biodiversity in this ancient sea.

Southern Right Whales of Argentina (2006), Argentina - "Southern Right Whales of Argentina" is an educational documentary film that explores the natural history and ecology of Southern Right Whales in Peninsula Valdes, Argentina. The program is a part of a nationwide education program throughout Argentina called “Bringing Whales to Your School” distributed freely by the International Fund for Animals Welfare (IFAW) and the Instituto de Conservacion de Ballenas in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Whale Trackers (2006-2009) - Whale Trackers is a series of documentary programs that journey across the world's oceans to explore the lives of whales, dolphins and porpoises.

Voyage of the Odyssey, PBS Television, USA (2000-2005) - Online series. The Voyage of the Odyssey was an award-winning 5 and a half year global scientific and education expedition studying whales and the health of the world's oceans. Led by biologist Dr. Roger Payne of the Ocean Alliance, explore over 500 educational audio and video reports from the field called “Odyssey Logs” as the crew travelled to 22 countries over 87,000 nautical miles.

 

Communications projects

National Geographic Magazine, Latin American Edition (2009) - Imagery for a feature article to be published in November 2009 issue about the Mexican fisheries and the endangered vaquita porpoise.

Univision Network (USA/Mexico), “Aqui y Ahora” USA/Mexico (2009) - Worked with producers of an international Spanish language current affairs program “Aqui y Ahora” on a story about extinction and the vaquita porpoise in Mexico.
