Sharing the Whales of Southern California
by Dale Frink, Newport Whale Watching

Southern California is the birthplace of commercial whale watching and the activity has evolved from incidentally keeping fishing boats busy during the slow season which coincides with the gray whale migration to a year-round enterprise with many custom built vessels and dedicated crews. Dale Frink works as Photographer, Naturalist, and Deckhand at Newport Whale Watching in Orange County. In addition to featuring his stunning photography, Dale’s presentation will focus on how membership in ACS provided a springboard for his career, the importance of naturalists, and how being involved helps offer a wider platform for messages of education and conservation.

Originally from the great state of Iowa, Dale has been a member of ACS since 2012 and involved professionally in whale watching since 2013 in both Dana Point and Newport Beach. Dale’s passion for photography has allowed him contribute to research efforts identifying individual whales around the world in the US, Mexico, Dominican Republic and New Zealand. Prior to this Dale held volunteer internships at Ocean Institute in Dana Point and the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach.

RAFFLE: We will have a fun and exciting raffle at the end of the presentation. Tickets will be for sale at the meeting and all who attend the dinner will receive a free ticket.

The talk is free and open to the public, held at the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, 3720 Stephen M. White Drive in San Pedro.

Join us for a relaxed, no-host dinner at Puesta del Sol (1622 S. Gaffey, San Pedro). Dinner is from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Receive a free raffle ticket by attending the dinner.

ACS-LA Monthly Speaker Series is held at 7:30 p.m., the last Tuesday of the month, except for July and December each year in the John M Olguin Auditorium at the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, 3720 Stephen M. White Dr., San Pedro, CA.
