In May 2014, The Whale Trail and partners presented Erich Hoyt in a series of nine presentations around The Whale Trail – Orca Tour 2014. We traveled from Saturna BC to Monterey CA—9 cities and 2 countries in 15 days, reaching sold out and enthusiastic audiences along the way.
We had such a great time, we decided to do it again! We are bringing Erich back for another series of talks around the Pacific Northwest in early October. (See schedule for details). Orca Tour 2015 was timed to coincide with the seasonal return of the southern resident orcas to central Puget Sound.
As before, each event is organized and hosted by organizations who share our vision and commitment to stewardship for orcas, other marine mammals, and the marine environment. We’re thrilled to collaborate with the following organizations:
- Saturna Island Marine Education and Research Society
- Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre and Raincoast Conservation Foundation
- Citizens for a Healthy Bay
Also as before, Orca Tour 2015 would not be possible with the generous support of the following sponsors and supporters:
- Sound Community Bank
- Kongsgaard-Goldman Foundation
- Washington Foundation for the Environment (WFFE)
- Ravenwind Farm
- Pete Schroeder, D.V.M.
Interested in co-sponsoring? We’re still looking for co-sponsors for the upcoming events. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Some of the tour details are still being finalized. Watch this page for updates. You can also follow us on Facebook. Hope to see you on Orca Tour 2015!
