Photo by speaker Jeff Jacobsen of a killer whale and rhinoceros auklet off of the Mendocino Coast, May 2019. Jeff will tell more of this story during his talk!

What started as a simple admiration of killer whales turned into a career of observation and research. Jeff Jacobson has dedicated endless hours following pods, tracking behavioral patterns, and learning to appreciate these mammals for their tenacity, personalities, and more. Join us for an unforgettable evening under our infamous killer whale skeleton, and learn about what his life could have been like while he swam our local oceans. Jeff has a fantastic collection of photos he will share, as well as stories from his experiences with these magnificent marine mammals.
