Event: Orca Expert and Author Erich Hoyt Featured – Olympia & Seattle

While not on the Peninsula, some of you may want to attend this.
Internationally-renowned author and killer whale expert Erich Hoyt will speak in October along the Whale Trail at locations ranging from British Columbia to South Puget Sound. 
“Orca Tour 2015” celebrates the seasonal return of the endangered Southern Resident Killer Whales to central Puget Sound and builds awareness of the whales throughout their range in the Salish Sea and along the Pacific Coast. This transboundary tour is especially timely with the birth of the fifth calf in the Southern Resident Killer Whale pods since December 2014.
“The birth of five new calves in J, K and L pods gives us five more reasons to recover this population. The collaborative nature of the Orca Tour demonstrates our shared commitment to restore salmon, reduce toxins and create quieter seas,” said Donna Sandstrom, founder and director of The Whale Trail.
Organized by The Whale Trail and local sponsoring organizations, Hoyt’s talks are scheduled for:
  • Oct. 10- Olympia WA. “Adventures with Orcas in the North Pacific” hosted by The Whale Trail at the Olympia Friends Meeting Hall;
  • Oct. 11- Tacoma WA. “Adventures with Orcas in the North Pacific” hosted by Citizens for a Healthy Bay at the UW Carwein Hall; and
  • Oct. 13- Seattle WA. “Ants, Orcas and Creatures of the Deep” hosted by The Whale Trail at the Hall at Fauntleroy in West Seattle.
Tickets for the Washington talks are available through Brown Paper Tickets, http://brownpapertickets.com (search Erich Hoyt).
