Saying so long ...

A large crowd was at the Marine Institute in St. John's on Sunday to honour the life and work of  internationally renowned whale researcher Jon Lien.

Lots of stories, lots of laughter, lots of tears, lots of music, lots of remembering a man who made a genuine and lasting connection with everyone he met. And a reminder to take action to protect the environment.

Everyone raising a glass to honour Jon Lien.
