Studying Orcas in Antarctica

Field Work In Antarctica With Dr. Andrew Wright

By Antarctica No Comments

Dr. Andrew Wright joins us on a special episode today as we recorded this interview about his field work in Antarctica while he was still in ANTARCTICA!!!!

Andrew is working with on a team of scientists to gather information on fish-eating Orcas that frequent the Ross Sea as part of a monitoring program for the Ross Sea MPA.

Andrew and I discuss the field work that involved great encounters with Orcas, Emperor Penguins and Seals, but we also discussed the challenges that the team faced while working in such a tough environment.

Take a listen to find out about Andrew’s experience in Antarctica and what an Orca gave the principle investigator.
