Canadian killer whales

For the next 3 weeks, I’ll be based out of Port Hardy, British Columbia, Canada, helping a friend of mine do some field work on fish-eating killer whales. In fact, this is the same friend, Volker Deecke, who appears in the radio piece on killer whales that aired earlier this year on Weekend Edition Sunday.  We’ll be tagging these animals with instruments that record their vocalizations and movements. I’ll try to keep this blog updated with what’s happening in the field. Tomorrow we drive from Nanaimo up to Port Hardy to get everything set up!
