Second annual Thank You Whales event shines light on fracking

The second annual Thank You Whales celebration kicked off Saturday morning. The event was held at Old Port Beach in Avila. Organizers say last year, whales showed up just in time to stop seismic testing. This year, the whales showed up in time to shine light on fracking off shore. "We're facing a crisis here. Our oceans are in crisis. Our whales are in crisis, and consequently, our children are in crisis, so we come together, we find our strengths together as opposed to what we have that's not in common," said Joey Racano, the Director of Ocean Outfall. The event continues Sunday morning with a Thank You Whales celebrity cruise. You can catch the boat before it leaves at 9 a.m. from Subsea Tours in Morro Bay.
