SR Killer Whales - The Road to Recovery
It has been almost 8 years since the Southern Resident Killer Whales (J, K and L pods) were listed as endangered. How are they doing? What progress has been made towards their recovery? What can we do to help?
Join us for this informal and informative talk featuring Lynne Barre, NOAA Fisheries. Learn what NOAA and its partners are doing to conserve and protect these iconic and beloved whales, including current research, management approaches and population updates.
Lynne Barre is a Branch Chief in the Protected Resources Division at NOAA. She worked on the endangered listing of the Southern Residents, designated critical habitat, and developed and finalized the SRKW Recovery Plan.
As part of the recovery program, Lynne developed an oil spill response plan and protective regulations for killer whales in Washington. She works closely with partner organizations, including The Whale Trail, to implement the recovery plan. Lynne also works on the newly listed rockfish species and coordinates with Puget Sound salmon recovery.
We'll also hear updates from Robin Lindsay (Seal Sitters.org) and Laura James (tox-ick.org).
This the second in an "Orca Talk" meeting series, hosted by The Whale Trail (www.thewhaletrail.org).
