Dr. Trites has been studying marine mammals in the North Pacific for over 30 years. His research spans the fields of nutrition, ecology, physiology, anthropology and oceanography; and involves captive studies, field studies and simulation models that range from single species to whole ecosystems. His research program is designed to further the conservation and understanding of marine mammals, and resolve conflicts between people and marine mammals. He recently led the Blue Whale Project to display the world’s largest freely suspended skeleton at the UBC Beaty Biodiversity Museum.
