About The Event
For Orca Action Month, our Season 1 finale, Cetacean Session #6, will take a closer look at the high PCB levels in different populations of killer whales in the northern North Atlantic. Anaïs Remili will discuss results from her paper “Individual prey specialization drives PCB levels in Icelandic killer whales” recently published in Environmental Science and Technology and Clare Andvik will provide an overview of results from her latest papers “High levels of legacy and emerging contaminants in killer whales (Orcinus orca) from Norway, 2015 to 2017” published in Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry and “Preying on seals pushes killer whales from Norway above pollution effects thresholds” published in Scientific Reports. Presentation and discussion will be followed by live Q&A with the audience.
