Ways of Whales, with a lineup of fascinating speakers on a variety of topics important to whale education and conservation.

All are welcome to Orca Network's annual Ways of Whales Workshop on January 28th, 2012 at Camp Casey, a quarter mile west of the Keystone ferry terminal in Coupeville, with a lineup of fascinating speakers on a variety of topics important to whale education and conservation.

This year's workshop includes presentations by:

~Candice Emmons, NOAA Fisheries NWFSC - Suction cup tag research on Southern Resident orcas

~Jessica Lunden, Center for Conservation Biology, Univ. of Washington - Orca scat project, detecting stress hormones in Southern Resident orcas

~Matt Krogh, North Sound Baykeeper Team - Impacts and implications of the planned Gateway Pacific coal shipping Terminal at Cherry Point

~William Wilcock, School of Oceanography, University of Washington - Fin Whale Seismology

~Howard Garrett, Orca Network - Update on captive orca issues

Environmental education displays and materials will be available throughout the day as well.

Cost of the workshop is $25, and lunch is available for purchase for an additional $10 (for those who pre-register by Jan. 20, or on an as-available basis after this date). Lunch will be Meat or Vegetarian Spaghetti, with garlic bread, vegetable, Caesar salad, fresh fruit, warm apple crisp and beverage. We recommend purchasing lunch at the workshop site, as it allows more time for visiting educational displays, networking, and meeting presenters and other workshop participants. Snacks and beverages are also provided during the morning and afternoon breaks.
