Dr. John Ford is a globally recognized expert in the identification, social organization, and life history of killer whales. His pioneering work in the 1970’s revealed the incredibly complex social structure within different populations of killer whales, and his research paved the way for an appreciation of orcas as highly intelligent marine mammals. His work studying the foraging specializations of different orca populations has (once again!) come to the forefront as scientists, citizens and politicians aim to develop informed and meaningful management and protection strategies for southern resident killer whales in BC.
Join Dr. Ford for an evening that will unveil the science and the politics of a charismatic top predator that has captured the eyes and hearts of many around the world.
