Learn about the fascinating history of our human relationship to orcas, the majestic—and critically endangered—icons of the Salish Sea. Jason M. Colby, author of Orca: How We Came to Know and Love the Ocean’s Greatest Predator, will share stories about the sad era when orcas were trapped and killed, how our perception of them was dramatically transformed, and why it’s vitally important to preserve their dwindling population.
