About the Author
Ron Hirschi has more than 30 years experience as a fisheries biologist and teaches many workshops on ocean ecology. He has led thousands of young people into rivers and streams, ponds and the ocean to study and protect the water world. Recently, he was invited to participate in an environmental leadership project at Midway Atoll in the Northwest Hawaiian Islands. This experience strengthened his belief that the future of the ocean rests in the hands of kids - kids who might learn to love whales so much, they will want to help them.
