– NFWF grant awarded to HSWRI scientist

Determining what killer whales eat, particularly during times when we aren’t sure exactly where they are, is extremely difficult but critical to conservation efforts. Our scientist Dr. Sam Rossman was recently awarded a grant to advance tools using stable isotopes to document the diet of marine mammals. We hope to apply this work to aid the recovery efforts of wild killer whale populations.

Thank you to National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, SeaWorld, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and Shell for this generous grant!
