October's Speaker: Cindy Hansen from San Juan Islands on behalf of Orca Network

Topic:  Preventing Extinction – the Story of Southern Resident Orcas

From Namu to Free Willy to Blackfish, orcas have fascinated us for generations. But sadly our Washington State marine mammal is in serious trouble. Learn about the fascinating biology, social structure and culture of our local orcas and the events that have led to their ongoing decline. 

Cindy Hansen was born in Indiana and grew up in Alberta before moving to Washington so, being inland her entire childhood she naturally developed an affinity for whales. She received a Bachelors in Zoology from the University of Washington and has worked as a whale watch naturalist, Education Curator at The Whale Museum in Friday Harbor, and currently as the Education and Events Coordinator for Orca Network. She has also spent 18 winters migrating with the gray whales to San Ignacio Lagoon in Baja Mexico where she works as a naturalist/guide for Baja Discovery. While whales are her passion she also maintains a love and respect for furred and feathered animals. She is a licensed veterinary technician, a volunteer and board member for Wolf Hollow Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, and she volunteers with a cat rescue group which provides her with a seemingly endless supply of orphaned bottle-fed kittens who can sometimes be seen watching whales with her at Lime Kiln Park.
