SAJA, the South Asian Journalists Association, presents a conversation about the plight of blue whales in the waters off Sri Lanka.

Join SAJA board members Jigar Mehta (@JigarMehta) and Sree Sreenivasan (@sree) for a webcast with 2012 SAJA reporting fellow Erik Olsen (@olsentropy) of the New York Times.

In Sri Lanka, ship traffic and a rapid increase in whale watching
tourism is putting a little understood population of blue whales at
risk. Sri Lankan marine biologist Asha de Vos has committed her life to protecting these magnificent animals. In this video and print work, New York Times Video Journalist Erik Olsen traveled to Sri Lanka to look into this story.
