It was at the age of nine that I first heard a recording of a family of orcas; instantly I was both captivated and extremely curious. This was my first emotional response to sound, and the inspiration it gave me led to a life-long commitment to understanding the behaviour of whales. After I graduated, my dream was to build a research station in an area where whales thrive and the presence and impact of people are minimal. I was fortunate enough to meet Hermann Meuter, who shares the same passion.
