Curated Conversations | Abalone to Orcas: Saving Puget Sound with Science and Stories
Presented by Joe Gaydos, science director, SeaDoc Society
The unique wildlife and rich culture of Puget Sound and the broader Salish Sea need collective stewardship and healing to thrive. From Southern resident orcas and Chinook salmon to seawalls and community gardens, the choices we make today will determine the future of this region and all who live here. The Burke Museum’s current special exhibit, We Are Puget Sound, brings to life the stories of the people working to protect and restore this region.
Join us for a conversation with an advisor on the exhibit, Joe Gaydos, to learn more about the interconnected relationships of the Salish Sea region and how we can deepen the impact of our conservation efforts. Joe is the science director at the SeaDoc Society, a marine conservation program of the UC Davis Karen C. Drayer Wildlife Health Center, and for the last two decades, has been working on wildlife and ecosystem conservation in the Pacific Northwest. Joe is an expert voice on wildlife health issues and has advised policymakers from Washington State to Washington D.C.
