Erich Hoyt, ORCA TOUR 2019 SEATTLE @ The Hall at Fauntleroy
Sep 19 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join us for this rare Seattle appearance by internationally-renowned author and marine conservationist Erich Hoyt to celebrate the newly released 5th edition of his classic book, Orca the Whale Called Killer and to learn how his efforts to protect marine mammal habitats worldwide might support the conservation of orcas in the North Pacific, including the endangered southern resident orcas.

Orca: The Whale Called Killer charts Erich Hoyts adventures and conservation work which began with killer whales off the B.C. coast and was followed by two decades of orca research in Kamchatka, Russia.

As co-chair of the IUCN Marine Mammal Protected Areas Task Force and policy lead for the Healthy Seas program of the U.K.-based Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC), Erich co-directs a 10-year project to map the habitats for 130 species of marine mammals across the world’s oceans. His book Marine Protected Areas for Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises has helped set the standard for marine biodiversity conservation work.

The talk will be followed by a book signing and Q&A. Erich’s books will be for sale at the event.

This is one of three stops on Orca Tour 2019. Other talks will be held in Friday Harbor 9/24 co-presented by the Whale Museum, and Saturna Island 9/28 co-presented by Saturn Island Marine Research and Education Society (SIMRES). Erich’s Seattle talk is sponsored by Sound Community Bank, Orca Running, and Dr. Pete Schroeder DVM.
