Presented by The Whale Trail

Join us for this rare Seattle appearance by internationally-renowned author and marine conservationist Erich Hoyt to celebrate the newly released 5th edition of his classic book, Orca the Whale Called Killer and to learn how his efforts to protect marine mammal habitats worldwide might support the conservation of orcas in the North Pacific, including the endangered southern resident orcas.

Orca: The Whale Called Killer charts Erich Hoyts adventures and conservation work which began with killer whales off the B.C. coast and was followed by two decades of orca research in Kamchatka, Russia.

As co-chair of the IUCN Marine Mammal Protected Areas Task Force and policy lead for the Healthy Seas program of the U.K.-based Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC), Erich co-directs a 10-year project to map the habitats for 130 species of marine mammals across the world’s oceans. His book Marine Protected Areas for Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises has helped set the standard for marine biodiversity conservation work.

The talk will be followed by a book signing and Q&A. Erich’s books will be for sale at the event.

Climate-change panel discussion: What you can do @ Our Lady of Guadalupe Walmesley Center
Oct 1 @ 7:00 pm

At 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 1, Gene Duvernoy, founder and CEO emeritus of Forterra, will lead a panel of experts and policy leaders in a discussion of what individuals need to do to help protect our environment and deal with climate change. It will be held at the Our Lady of Guadalupe Walmesley Center, 7000 35th Ave. SW. The public is invited.

The event is hosted by the joint Green Ministry of Our Lady of Guadalupe and Holy Rosary parishes to celebrate the Season of Creation, Sept. 1-Oct. 4.

Duvernoy founded Forterra (then called Cascade Land Conservancy) in 1989 in his attic. It now has offices in Seattle and Tacoma and in the last 30 years, working with a number of partners, has conserved more than 250,000 acres of land in Washington, about four times the land in the city limits of Seattle. Duvernoy was chosen to lead Earth Day Northwest 2020 by Denis Hayes, president and CEO of the Bullitt Foundation, who was the national organizer of the first Earth Day in 1970.
