Deception Pass State Park | Spring Speaker Series | Dr. Cindy Elliser

February 25, 2022 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

Dr. Cindy Elliser, Founder and Research Director of PacMam, will present her talk titled, “Making a Mark: Harbor Porpoises in the Salish Sea” at Walla Walla University’s Rosario Beach Marine Laboratory.

“Surprisingly little is known about harbor porpoises in the Salish Sea, despite the fact that they are one of the most abundant marine mammal species in the area. Through observation and photo-ID research, Pacific Mammal Research (PacMam) is learning more about their population through the lens of the individual.”

Join Deception Pass State Park Spring Speaker Series to learn all about harbor porpoises, the photo-ID research PacMam is conducting and what we have learned so far about this poorly understood marine mammal.

To attend this presentation in-person or virtually please pre-register on Eventbrite.
