This is an hour-long conversation about southern resident killer whales involving Dave Dix, Brad Hanson, and Robin Baird on KUOW’s weekday with Steve Sher. With luck there will be similar conversations about the state of Puget Sound as we all digest the Puget Sound Partnship’s Draft Action Agenda – 06Nov2008. clipped from www.kuow.org Orcas Dying [...]
Notes on a talk by Sue Moore entitled “Marine Mammals: Insight to climate change through surveys and song” at UW (16:00-16:45) Overarching question: are grey whales a sentinel species to climate change in the Arctic and North Pacific? Polar bears now expected to be down 30% by 2050. Arctic ice down 3Mkm^2 from 7M. 10x [...]

There is an increasing number of near-real-time sensors like webcams out in SRKW habitat. In an effort to keep abreast of these resources (as a community), you can now access and modify my list of favorite sensors for monitoring orca habitat in the Orcasphere wiki. This is primarily a list of web cams and environmental [...]
With special thanks for support from the Makah Tribe and coordination by Jon Scordino, there is now underwater sound streaming live from Neah Bay via the Salish Sea hydrophone network. The network is an experiment in human and automated monitoring of underwater sounds within the critical habitat of the endangered southern resident killer whales. The [...]

Humans value interacting with killer whales. There are many ways to observe them, learn and wonder about them, and ultimately help protect them: observe them from land by traversing The Whale Trail; watch them on webcams at the Center for Whale Research or Race Rocks; listen to them with live hydrophones in their summer home [...]

I’ve been hanging out with these animals for five years now, and for the first time I’m trying my hand at research. Here is the full text of my research proposal. [...]
