Know Your Islanders Presents Whale-Poop Sniffing Dog
From San Juan Island Library
At 7 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 13, meet a conservation canine during the San Juan Island Library’s virtual Know Your Islanders event.
Eba, the whale dog, is a poop-sniffing rescue dog in the University of Washington’s Center for Conservation Biology Whale Scat program.
Eba is helping Dr. Sam Wasser and Dr. Deborah Giles better understand how to save the endangered Southern Resident Killer Whales.
Giles will talk about how Eba finds whale poop, what analyzing the fecal matter tells us about the whales, and the steps we can all take to help recover this beloved population of whales.
