Fernando kissing a whale

ELAW partner Fernando Ochoa Pineda and ELAW Communications Director Maggie Keenan were guests on KLCC’s Northwest Passage last week. Fernando lives and works in Ensenada, Baja California protecting the coastline so that whales (and people too!) can enjoy the ocean. He spoke about fighting unsustainable tourism development and other environmental challenges on the Baja peninsula – and recounted his experience swimming with the whales.

He and Maggie also spoke about the ELAW annual meeting. Fernando described how inspired he is by his colleagues in the ELAW network, and the joy he gets from his work.
