Join the conversation with host Jeff Renner, an Emmy-award-winning producer of science documentaries, as we delve into the journalistic efforts that bring forth critical environmental stories. These great local writers, with their hard work and skilled storytelling, share with us the discovery and exploration of fascinating animals, places and forces of nature.

Thursday, March 2: Lynda Mapes and Alan Berner, Rescuing Rialto: Conservation and Compassion

A look at the extraordinary rescue of Rialto the sea otter, and how the Seattle Times teamed up with the Seattle Aquarium to tell a story of conservation and compassion as the Aquarium rehabilitated a stranded sea otter pup from Rialto Beach, nursed it back to health with 24/7 expert care, and moved the animal to its permanent home in Vancouver, B.C.

Learn about why the Seattle Times decided to “go big” on this story, the extraordinary partnership with the Aquarium, and the importance of working together to tell stories of compassion and conservation in what can be discouraging times—and the challenges facing such efforts in the future.

A reception with light refreshments will precede each program.

Tickets: $10 each advance/$8 Aquarium members
$15 day of event

Sound Conversations is presented in partnership with KCTS 9 and The Seattle Times.
