Center for Whale Research ID Study

Alex and Maisie pose with the legend Ken Balcomb and the folder of the first ever year of Southern resident killer whale ID's! During this visit Ken showed us his vast library of cetacean related books, we wanted to camp out there for a week! He also walked us through the years and varying methods of data collection since the study began in 1976.

The Center for Whale Research is dedicated to the study and conservation of the Southern resident killer whales; you can visit them at and become a member to support their work and get whaley cool perks!
