The Dennis Minsky show goes national!

4 02 2010

Click on the whale for a story featuring Dennis in the UK's Guardian newspaper

Not that we heard it from the modest Dennis himself. In the course of our average day here in the SEANET office, we were listening to an NPR interview (On Point with tom Ashbrook) with author Philip Hoare. Hoare was touting his new book The Whale: In Search of the Giants of the Sea, when we suddenly heard Seanetter Dennis Minsky’s name. It turns out that Dennis (who is involved in naturalist activities of all sorts in addition to being a faithful SEANET volunteer) had been Hoare’s guide to the whales around Cape Cod. Hoare was quite taken with Dennis’ knowledge and insight, which will not surprise anyone who has met Dennis. If you didn’t catch the show this morning, you can give it a listen at On Point Radio.

Not that we have anything to do with his good works and dedication, but SEANET is inordinately happy about this!

Also, if you would please help our own Dr. Julie Ellis to boost her blog stats it would be much appreciated. Julie has a new post about one of her banded gulls turning up rather unexpectedly.

Hey Dennis,
Saw this link to you while checking out Philip’s NPR show. Taylor’s dad gave us a copy of the book that got sent to his news studio. Great stuff! Have been reading the Audobon reports from the cape in the globe and thinking of you, too.
