Who knew we would love talking about poo so much!
Dr. Giles and her scat sniffing pooch Eba have taught us so much about orca poo and what we can learn from it. This is a critical part of Southern resident killer whale science and is run through the University of Washington and Conservation Canine. It has given us information on the populations re-productivity, nutrition status, what they are eating and where from, stress levels and more!
This image shows the first time we ran into Dr. Giles on the water!
