Do you know how much food a gray whale eats each day? Do you know how incredibly cute river otters are? Join Adam Ratner, Visitor Programs Coordinator and animal care volunteer at The Marine Mammal Center as he shares his research experience with gray whales and river otters in British Columbia. As part of an Earthwatch expedition, he tracked gray whales and studied their feeding behaviors, as well as human impacts on the whales. As a separate research project, he also studied river otter feeding ecology and haul-out spots along the Vancouver coast to identify where the river otters were traveling and their diets.

Don't miss this opportunity to learn more about the fascinating eating habits of some of the ocean's marine mammals, large and small.
