PENOBSCOT — Local marine activist, musician and radio personality Bob LeVangie will combine his passion for protecting oceans with his passion for music when he launches “The Great North Atlantic Fish and Whale Tour” on April 10.

A member of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, LeVangie has logged more than 20,000 miles at sea with the international, nonprofit marine wildlife conservation organization.

In “The Great North Atlantic Fish and Whale Tour,” LeVangie will present his experience as a navigator and engineer on three different Sea Shepherd boats, as the crew encountered and confronted illegal foreign fishing vessels. He will share the experience through slides, videos and story. Each presentation will include LeVangie on guitar covering classic rock and folk pieces.

The “Fish and Whale” tour debuts at the Blue Hill Library Friday, April 10, at 5:30 p.m. On Earth Day, April 22, LeVangie will be at the Bird Watcher’s Store and Café on Water Street in Blue Hill, starting at 5:30 p.m.

On Saturday, May 9, LeVangie will add a light show and ’60s dance music to the videos, slides and talk on marine protection when he hosts the “Full Moon Dance” at the Blue Hill Town Hall, starting at 7 p.m.

There is no charge for any of “The Great North Atlantic Fish and Whale Tour” presentations, but donations will be accepted.
