ORCA JOURNEY: HEALTHY SEAS FOR WHALES – AN ILLUSTRATED TALK BY ERICH HOYT, AUTHOR AND RESEARCH FELLOW, WHALE AND DOLPHIN CONSERVATION

KILLER WHALES WERE ORIGINALLY CONSIDERED TOO DANGEROUS TO APPROACH IN THE WILD BUT WHEN ERICH HOYT AND HIS COLLEAGUES SPENT SEVEN SUMMERS IN THE 1970’S AND EARLY 1980’S LIVING AMONG THESE INTELLIGENT AND PLAYFUL CREATURES, THEY LEARNED MORE THAN ENOUGH TO DISPEL THE KILLER WHALE MYTH.

Based on those summers of adventure and discovery, Hoyt wrote the book  ‘Orca: The Whale Called Killer’ in 1981.  Now in a greatly expanded fifth edition, it remains a revered classic updated with fresh insights into the life history of the largest member of the dolphin family.

Author Erich Hoyt visits the LSi to present an illustrated talk on his work with killer whales and how that has led to his mission to help create Marine Protected Areas across the globe.

Erich’s books will be available and he will be signing copies from 7pm.

This is a fundraising event.

All proceeds go towards the development of Bridport LSi Reg Charity No. 1137231

Bar will be open.

Erich Hoyt is Research Fellow with Whale and Dolphin Conservation and Founder/Co-Director of the long term Far East Russia Orca Project (FEROP) in Kamchatka and the Commander Islands.

Author of 23 books, he also co-chairs the IUCN Marine Mammal Protected Areas Task Force.

Erich lives here in Dorset.
