Emotions behind the last whale hunt

Hello all!

My latest post went live on Nat Geo’s site a couple days ago. Enjoy! I’ve just come back from three days on Pico island and now have another ten interviews under my belt – more to come soon!

Francisco “Barbeiro” Joaquim Machado, age 92, whaled for over 50 years and was the official in the whaleboat that killed the last whale in the Azores on November 14, 1987 – three years after whaling had officially ended on the islands. Photo by Gemina Garland-Lewis.
