Killer Whale Tales

June 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm PDT

See Killer Whales “swimming” on the walls at the Northwest Stream Center.  Thanks to amazing video photography by Jeff Hogan from Killer Whale Tales (killerwhaletales.org), you will be able to learn how to identify each member of the “Southern Pod.”  They reside in waters around the San Juan Islands and make occasional trips south into Puget Sound.  

Jeff will teach you to recognize if the Orcas you see in Puget Sound are hunting for salmon, traveling from one area to another, or just playing as they leap and splash.  You will also observe these magnificent whales  sleeping….they sleep “on the move” by putting one-half of their extremely large brain to sleep while navigating with the other half!!

Thanks to a video-cam attachment, you will see a “whales eye view” of swimming in a killer whale pod (never seen on TV).  “Jeff Hogan’s entertaining presentation is not only very educational, but fun for young and old.” says Adopt A Stream Foundation’s Tom Murdoch.  “He is not only a great teacher and photographer, but a trained actor to boot.  Jeff puts on a ‘whale of a show’!!!”

This will be a fun afternoon that you can cap off with a stroll around the Northwest Stream Centers Elevated Nature Trail and where you can learn about salmon habitat that is essential for the survival of killer whales.
