Students from the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communications are among the first to document the Route of the Whale—the southern right whales’ sacred migration route in the South Atlantic Ocean. In cooperation with the Organización para la Conservación de los Cetaceos (OCC), an organization dedicated to the protection and conservation of marine mammals along the Uruguayan coast, eight students and professor Carol Ann Bassett travel the South Atlantic coast producing multimedia stories about the efforts to protect the precious habitat and the looming threats of megadevelopment.
