Please answer the questions below to customize your notifications and help us document how well Orcasound works as a conservation tool.
Orcasound notifications provide a link to a live-listening opportunity. Live "concerts" -- usually southern resident killer whales calling -- happen on average a couple times per month, but can be daily events during the summertime. Each notification of a listening opportunity may also contain timely conservation actions that you can take to help educate yourself, promote marine conservation, protect the species being heard, and/or support the host of the hydrophone node in solving local marine environmental problems.
Each listening opportunity will also include a link to the local Be Whale Wise guidelines which we expect all vessel- and land-based listeners to know, follow, promulgate, and help enforce. For guidance in the Salish Sea, please refer to -- https://www.bewhalewise.org/
We plan many types of notification methods, but are starting with an email list. If you'd like to receive notifications, you must provide your email address (which will only be used for Orcasound notifications & measuring conservation effect) and first/last names (required by our email distribution list):
