About the author (2006)

Dr. Robin W. Baird is one of the world’s leading killer whale experts. Growing up near the ocean in Canada, he had his first glimpse of wild killer whales by the Victoria, British Columbia, waterfront.  Following the completion of his Ph.D. in 1994, Baird studied killer whale and other dolphin and whale populations all over the world, including in Canada, the United States, Iceland, and New Zealand.  He was part of the team involved in the release program for the killer whale “Keiko” in Iceland and has written and co-written more than 50 scientific articles and book chapters.  He lives in Olympia, Washington, and works at Cascadia Research in Olympia, Washington.
