OrcaTour 2015 SEATTLE "Ants, Orcas and Creatures of the Deep", Presentation by Erich Hoyt
This talk explores the search for story and scientific as well as literary inspiration that has led to Erich Hoyt's books for adults and children on a wide variety of subjects.

Starting with killer whales and other whales, including Orca: The Whale Called Killer and The Whale Watcher's Handbook, Hoyt wrote about E.O. Wilson's fieldwork  on ants and social insects in The Earth Dwellers and Insect Lives, widely and well reviewed in The New York Times and other publications. Hoyt's books on deep sea creatures, including Creatures of the Deep, follow the Census on Marine Life work and the last frontier on Earth: the deep ocean.

This highly entertaining talk for a wide, general audience provides an appreciation of how various animal groups learn about and interact with their world, the odd similarities between studying ants and whales, and why habitat and ecosystem protection is the only way to keep these stories alive.

Erich's books will be on sale at the event and can be signed.  

Erich's talk in Seattle is presented by The Whale Trail, Marine Science and Technology Center (MaST), and NuCor. Sponsors include American Cetacean Society and Patagonia.

Orca Tour 2015 also includes stops in Saturna BC (10/3), Sidney BC (10/6), Tacoma WA (10/11), and Seattle WA (10/13).

About The Whale Trail

The Whale Trail (www.thewhaletrail.org) is a series of sites along the North American west coast to watch orcas and other marine mammals from shore.

Our goals are to increase awareness that our marine waters are home to orcas and other species; connect visitors to orcas, other marine wildlife and their habitat; inspire stewardship and build community; promote land-based whale watching. Our over-arching goal is to ensure the southern resident orcas do not go extinct.

The Whale Trail provides simple, powerful, and long-lasting reminders to visitors and residents alike that orcas and other whales live in our waters.  Through our current sites and signs, including two on every Washington State ferry, we reach more than 22 million people each year.

We are working with planning teams in British Columbia, Oregon and California to extend The Whale Trail along the North American west coast.

The Whale Trail is a 501(c)3 organization registered in Washington State.
