Join us Jan 20 2021 as we host Dr. Kim Parsons, a Research Geneticist with NOAA Fisheries’ Northwest Fisheries Science Center.

Here in the Pacific Northwest, we are lucky to have an abundance of natural wildlife, including the Southern Resident Killer Whale, or Orca. Come learn about the pioneering science happening here in the PNW into Orca genetics, and what it can teach us to protect our local population.
