LIHUE — The nonprofit whale conservation group Kohola Leo — Hawaiian for “whale’s voice” — will host a feature film night at Kapaa Library at 7 p.m. Friday. The event is free and open to the public.
On tap is “National Geographic: Whales in Crisis,” a film about pilots, humpbacks, bowheads and orcas and the scientists willing to risk life and limb as they journey from the Florida Keys to the Arctic in daring whale conservation and rescue missions. The documentary highlights the disaster of commercial whaling and includes captures from National Geographic’s “critter cam” of a rescue of beach pilot whales, showing what can be down if enough people care.
A group discussion will follow the screening.
