Future of Oceans Lecture Series:

"Southern Resident Killer Whales: Status, Trends, Solutions”

Posted by PTMSC

Our lecture series, The Future of Oceans, draws on the commitment of professional researchers and educators across all academic spectrums to help define and inspire the health of our oceans.

The Port Townsend Marine Science Center continues the lecture series by welcoming Lynda Mapes.

The southern resident orcas that frequent Puget Sound are unique in the world and one of the most ancient and intelligent animal societies on Earth. In this talk, Lynda Mapes, environment reporter for the Seattle Times and author of the newly-released book Orca Shared Waters Shared Home will explore and explain the natural history and biology of the southern resident orcas and what makes these families of orcas in our midst so special. She will explain the risks that threaten their survival, and discuss solutions to this extinction crisis.
