Virtual Gundalow Gatherings
“Faka’apa’apa” with Blue Latitudes
Nominated as an official selection for the International Ocean Film Festival
Travel virtually with us to Vava’u, Tonga.
Vava‘u is the island group comprising one large island and 40 smaller ones in the Kingdom of Tonga. In the years since Tonga banned whale hunting, an important piece of the local economy has become swimming with whales. But will this new form of ecotourism be sustainable? Join us to watch the documentary film, “Faka’apa’apa,” by Blue Latitudes Foundation, and then chat with the nonprofit group’s researchers Emily Hazelwood and Amber Sparks.
