Whale Trail Summer Gathering featuring photos by Stephen Rink
Join us for our upcoming Celebration of Whales with a presentation of photos by Stephen Rink! A passionate photographer, Stephen has recently returned from a trip to Monterey Bay California, where he witnessed an incredible Killer Whale predation event that he will share footage of.
The Whale Trail founder, Donna Sandstrom, has joined Govenor Jay Inslee's Orca Recovery Task Force and Vessel Impacts Working Group. Donna will share an update on the Task Force, as well as her hopes and goals for the Orca Recovery efforts.
About the Speaker
Stephen Rink is a Whale Trail volunteer who has been fascinated with whales since the age of 5. He has maintained an affinity for the ocean, and continues to travel the world to see different marine life and photograph them along the way.

He hopes to continue to travel as a photographer and eventually photograph whales aboard expedition vessels in Antarctica.
About The Whale Trail
The Whale Trail (www.thewhaletrail.org) is a series of sites to view orcas and other marine mammals from shore. Our mission is to inspire appreciation and stewardship of whales and our marine environment.
Through our current sites and signs, including two on every Washington State ferry, we reach more than 50 million people each year. The Whale Trail is currently adding new sites along the North American west coast, from California to British Columbia.
The Whale Trail is led by a core team of partners including NOAA Fisheries, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Seattle Aquarium, the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, the Whale Museum. Donna Sandstrom is the Founder and Executive Director. Many members of the team first met on the successful effort to return Springer, the orphaned orca, to her pod.
The Whale Trail is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, registered in Washington State. Join us!
