Whales slaughtering things

Sydney Morning Herald

No not the father and daughter hunting team, real whales, slaughtering yummy seals:

Argentina’s Peninsula Valdes is renowned as one of the world’s finest whale-watching destinations. For about six months of each year – from June to December – southern right whales crowd its protected bays, providing local tour boats with guaranteed sightings.

But outside the whale-watching season, an even grander ocean spectacle takes place around this pimple of barren land, midway between Buenos Aires and the southern tip of South America. As South American sea lions give birth along the peninsula’s coast each February, pods of orcas arrive offshore, poised for one of nature’s most dramatic hunting rituals. Riding waves onto the beach at Peninsula Valdes’ northern tip, the orcas beach themselves to snatch at sea lion pups, dragging them out to sea, often in full view of gathered spectators.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
