Our guest for this episode of The WeWhale Pod is Finn van der Aar. She is a marine scientist, sustainability expert and bestselling author.

Finn tells us about growing up close to the ocean in Ireland, her love of surfing (including an epic experience when a bottlenose dolphin surfed alongside!) and why she thinks we connect so deeply with whales and dolphins.

She also talks to us about research into marine noise pollution and what can be done to reduce the noise, for the health and wellbeing of marine mammals.

Finn also fills us on her upcoming book, a novel that’s been informed by her real life experiences at sea.
