Photos On The Radio

Coastal Currents | Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2011

Charles "Flip" Nicklin is giving a presentation tonight at the Van Duzer Theater. Widely regarded as the world’s leading cetacean photographer, Flip Nicklin grew up around his father’s small dive shop on the California coast. He went on to become National Geographic’s premiere whale photographer and marine mammal specialist. Over the last quarter century Flip has photographed more than thirty species of whales and dolphins, some so endangered their very survival is in question. In 2001 he co-founded Whale Trust, a non-profit organization dedicated to research and public education.
