Orca Expert Howard Garrett

Saturday, February 23, 2019

Garrett, of the Orca Network, reveals the lives of these little-understood Salish Sea inhabitants. Garrett will present a brief history of the growth of scientific knowledge about our resident orcas and about the natural history of orcas worldwide. Now down to only 74 members, our resident orcas are barely surviving. Garrett will talk about Gov. Inslee's Orca Recovery Executive Order, and the resulting Task Force process to find solutions. He will look at our changing attitudes toward orcas, the current environmental hazards impacting them (along with possible mitigations), and will provide an update on the improved prospects for the return of Lolita, the L pod orca captured in Penn Cove in 1970, now a marine performer in the Miami Seaquarium. Garrett has worked with Southern resident orca of the Pacific Northwest for over thirty years, beginning as a field assistant with the Center for Whale Research.
