"Smart Planet TV" visits HBOI
The crew of "Smart Planet TV" recently visited FAU Harbor Branch to talk to members of the Marine Mammal Research and Conservation program about the September 2012 pilot whale stranding in Fort Pierce. The material will be showcased later this year in a "Smart Planet TV" webisode, and also will be edited into a stand-alone half-hour episode for airing on television. Launched by host and executive producer Beth Smart, "Smart Planet TV" features the dramatic, emotional rescue efforts as large teams come together as one to save beached dolphins, stranded pilot whales, and other sea life. "Smart Planet TV" also showcases ground-breaking marine mammal research that can ultimately help humans live healthier and happier.
