Biology and behavior of killer whales | North Puget Sound gray whales Stranding response

While Cascadia Research participates in whale research in many other parts of the world, we have special interest in our own local cetacean and pinnipeds in the Puget Sound, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and off the Washington coast. Some of Cascadia’s earliest work involved studies of pollutant found in harbor seals in the Puget Sound, which is work that continues today through our participation in the Marine Mammal Stranding Network.
