Field Report From Ecuador
After four planes, misplaced luggage and countless Sudoku puzzles I arrived my final destination, Puerto Lopez, Ecuador some 5,321 miles from Maui, Hawaii. I am here to document a two-day whale festival and Pacific Whale Foundation’s 11 year presence in a growing Whalewatch destination.
I plan to capture the transformation of a small fishing to an epic whalewatching destination. I also want to highight conservation efforts for sustainable eco-tours and communal participation and the local celebration to protect humpback whales and the Machilla Marine Park.
