THANK YOU FOR JOINING US
Our event, Intertwined Fates: The Orca-Salmon Connection in the Pacific Northwest on October 7th, 2015 at the Seattle was a SOLD OUT success! More than 300 people gathered to hear experts discuss and explore the critical connections between Columbia Basin salmon and Southern Resident Killer Whales and to learn ways to recover these important species.
Our distinguished keynote speaker, Dr. Carl Safina, acclaimed scientist and award-winning author, talked about his latest book, “Beyond Words, What Animals Think and Feel,” in which he explores how non-humans feel, what they think, and how they relate to us and each other. At once thought-provoking, inspiring, and a call to action, Dr. Safina shared some of the experiences he has had with animals, including some with the Southern Resident Killer Whales while crafting the book.
Following Dr. Safina's talk, an expert panel of speakers including Southern Resident Killer Whale and Chinook salmon experts: Kenneth Balcomb, Senior Scientist at the Center for Whale Research; Dr. Jacques White, Executive Director of Long Live the Kings; Howard Schaller, salmon scientist with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; and Lynne Barre, marine biologist charged with orca recovery at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Marine Fisheries Services discussed the challenges that lie ahead and ways to boost the populations of the Southern Residents and their favorite prey.
