Blue Dot: Salish Sea Wild: a conversation with wildlife vet Joe Gaydos and filmmaker Bob Friel
The creators of the YouTube channel Salish Sea Wild join host Dave Schlom. Wildlife veterinarian and the science director for the SeaDoc Society, Joe Gaydos, has teamed with Producer Bob Friel to create high-quality content that explores one of the planet's most productive marine ecosystems, the Salish Sea in northwestern Washington and British Columbia.
The SeaDoc Society is a part of the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, a group of marine scientists and veterinarians dedicated to the health and well-being of the diverse wildlife of waters surrounding the San Juan Islands, based on Orcas Island in Washington. Their YouTube channel chronicles adventures from freeing seals and whales from entanglements with plastics and fishing gear, as well as exploring the world of everything from Giant Pacific Octopuses to Puffins. And you'll definitely want to hear about Eba, a rescue dog from Sacramento specially trained to sniff out killer whale poop for science!
