Join American Cetacean Society, San Francisco Bay Chapter for a captivating evening with Charles Vinick, Executive Director of Whale Sanctuary Project, as he shares with us the legacy of Keiko, the star of the film Free Willy.
The project to return the Free Willy whale, Keiko, to his birth waters near Iceland emanated from thousands of letters sent by children demanding that the star of Free Willy be set free. Charles will share his experience of four years managing that project in Vestmannaeyjar Iceland and discuss how the knowledge gained from Keiko informs the work of the Whale Sanctuary Project.
