New Pacific Whale Foundation Radio Show to Begin on Tuesday, Feb. 4 on KAOI 1110 AM and 96.7 FM

 "The Pacific Whale Foundation Radio Hour with Greg Kaufman" -- a  new show offering the latest discoveries and news about humpback whales and dolphins --  will launch on Tuesday, February 4 from 12 noon to 1 pm on KAOI 1110 AM and 96.7 FM, and online at http://kaoi1110.com.

"The Pacific Whale Foundation Radio Hour with Greg Kaufman" will air every Tuesday through March 11, to coincide with the peak of whalewatch season on Maui.

The show will be hosted by Pacific Whale Foundation founder and Executive Director Greg Kaufman. An early pioneer in whale research in the 1970s and an activist in the fight to save whales from extinction, Kaufman has studied whales in the wild for more than 35 years, in Hawaii, Australia, Ecuador and other parts of the Pacific. He is the author of four books about whales and is an invited participant in the International Whaling Commission's Scientific Committee.

Kaufman has also been a guest speaker at conferences and meetings around the world to promote sustainable whale and dolphin watching. He recently returned from Salalah, Oman, where he was an invited speaker at a conference  attended by national and international marine experts and tour operators who offer whale and dolphin watch cruises. The conference was organized by the Environmental Society of Oman (ESO).

Researchers, marine educators, environmental activists and organizers of the Maui Whale Festival will make guest appearances on each show.

"Tune in to learn more about whales, to hear fascinating stories about what's happening worldwide relating to whales and our oceans, and to find out about whale-related events on Maui," says Kaufman.
