Southern Ocean Stories: The Orca's Tale
The auction will be launched during our special free online webinar on Friday 7 July about the life of Orcas living in the Southern Ocean.
Two whale researchers will describe their work with orcas in the Southern Ocean. We'll hear how studying the movements, behaviour, abundance, culture and ecology of killer whale populations using direct observations and remote sensing technology can tell the story of our changing environment. Their tales about their experiences working in Antarctic waters will be illustrated with their fabulous photographs.

The Orca's Tale will be hosted by Alison Neil and Camilla Nichol, Chief Executives of the South Georgia Heritage Trust and UKAHT respectively. Our expert presenters will be researcher, author and captain Jared Towers and marine biologist and science communicator Leigh Hickmott.
Speaking at the event will be ecologist, author and skipper Jared Towers, alongside Bay Cetology Director and marine biologist Leigh Hickmott of Open Ocean Consulting who is known as the killer whale specialist for the BBC's Frozen Planet II series.
The event launches an online charity auction to raise funds towards conservation programmes that both organisations are undertaking in Antarctica and on the island of South Georgia.
