Know Your Islanders Talk

Dr. Deborah Giles: Eba, the Whale-Poop Sniffing Rescue Dog

Meet Conservation Canine Eba The Whale Dog, 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 to 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 steps we can all take to help recover this beloved population of whales.
