Celebrating virtual Orca Month, join the Orca Month Book Club! Read three great orca books: Orca: The Whale Called Killer by Erich Hoyt, Listening to Whales, What the Orcas Have Taught Us by Alexandra Morton, and Endangered Orcas: The Story of the Southern Residents by Monika Wieland Shields. To jump start your reading, Colleen Weiler of Whale and Dolphin Conservation and Whitney Neugebauer of Whale Scout interview the authors. Join us each Sunday in June for a new discussion.
This interview features Erich Hoyt, author of Orca: The Whale Called Killer. Journey into the world of Northern Resident killer whales in British Columbia in the 1970’s when little was known about these magnificent animals. Brought along on a film crew as the “sound guy,” Hoyt experimented with playing sounds for the whales. The book explores his experiences with the whales and the importance of the habitat where they thrive. Now in it’s fifth edition, this book is considered a “must read” for anyone interested in orcas in the Pacific Northwest.
