Following the migration of grey whales every winter, tourists, scientists, and conservationists descend upon the San Ignacio Lagoon in Baja, California, Mexico. Their presence – and the establishment of Latin America’s largest biosphere reserve – brings profound change to the lagoon’s small fishing community. Whales of Gold raises questions about how to conserve habitat and species in a way that sustains local people’s livelihoods.
