Episode 24: Kindness Is Childhood Dreams

When she was around seven years old, Olivia Pisano received a huge book all about animals. She loved learning about the animals, especially the whales. This interest in whales continued through elementary school, high school, all the way to her PhD.

Olivia joins Anitha to share her incredible story of connecting her PhD with her passion to help whales.

Olivia talks about her research project to use satellite imagery as a way to keep whales safe. She and Anitha also discuss major threats to the whale population, such as entanglement in fishing gear.

As a thank you to Olivia for sharing her story, Anitha donated to the Canadian Whale Institute. This charity is dedicated to protecting marine mammals and their habitats. To learn more about this group, please click here: https://www.canadianwhaleinstitute.ca

Episode 23: Kindness Is Saving Whales Together

In this very special episode, Jessica Cambell and her fifth-grade class from Mount Madonna School in California join Anitha to talk about their year- long class project to protect whales.

The students take turns talking about why they chose whales for their environmental project, what they have learned, the activities they have organized to spread the word about the plight of whales, and so much more.

These students show how much can be accomplished toward making the world a better place for all species, when people work together.

A truly inspiring episode!

As a thank you to Ms. Cambell and her students for sharing their story, Anitha donated to Save The Whales.
