Description

Western Cuyahoga Audubon Speaker Series 2017-2018

Program: Killer Whales of South Central Alaska
Presenter: Jennifer Allison
Date: Tuesday, November 7, 2017 at 7:30 PM
Location: Rocky River Nature Center, 24000 Valley Pkwy, North Olmsted, OH 44070 Map

Description: South Central Alaska has three ecotypes of killer whales; resident, transient and offshore. Jennifer Allison, deckhand on a tour boat, and volunteer with the North Gulf Oceanic Society (NGOS), identifies pods of killer whales that are sighted and her reports go to NGOS providing information about the identity and the activity of the whales. In her presentation “Killer Whales of South Central Alaska”, Jennifer shares her photos and knowledge on whale identification, some of the difficulties killer whales have experienced since the Exxon Valdez oil spill, and more recent information gathered this past season. Photos of the other wildlife and landscapes will enhance our understanding of this area of Alaska.

Programs are free and open to the public. Donations are appreciated.
