Whales the topic for lecture series tonight at NWCC

The North Coast Initiative of the Vancouver Aquarium is offering up a look at its study into the travels of British Columbia's Killer Whales, with a free lecture this evening at Northwest Community College.

Dr. Lance Barrett-Lennard will be the guide into the study of the giant sea mammals, as the marine mammal scientist provides some background on his 30 year career of study on the subject, including some new research findings that the Vancouver Aquarium is quite excited about.

You can learn more about their use of Hexacopters to track the Killer whales from this item from the Vancouver Aquarium blog. Dr. Barrett-Lennard will expand on the findings at tonight's and  review what they hope to learn in the future.

Dr. Barrett-Lennard takes his lecture tour to Kitimat for a Tuesday evening session at the Kitimat Public Library starting at 7 PM
