Gray whales and other large whales of the Pacific Northwest
Join us for a presentation by John Calambokidis, renowned marine mammal biologist and founder of Cascadia Research. John recently conducted the necropsy on the gray whale that stranded on Arroyo Beach in West Seattle.
John's talk will focus on the recovery and recent studies of the larger whales in the region, including the recent gray whale strandings in Puget Sound. He'll also talk about the resurgence of humpbacks along the coast, and recent sightings and studies of blue and fin whales.
Kathy Fletcher, Executive Director of People for Puget Sound, will update us on the health of Puget Sound and efforts towards its recovery.
Come learn more about the great whales that pass through our waters, and what we can do to help them.
The event is presented by The Whale Trail. The Whale Trail (www.thewhaletrail.org) is a project of Coast Watch Society, a 501(c)3 organization. Our mission is to inspire appreciation and stewardship of whales and our marine environment by establishing a network of viewing sites along the whales' trails through Puget Sound and the coastal waters of the Pacific Northwest.
