Corinthian Yacht Club Speaker Series: Wildlife on SF Bay & the California Coast

Carol Keiper is a marine ecologist specializing in marine birds and mammals. She has a degree in Education as well as a Master’s Degree in Marine Science from Moss Landing Marine Laboratories. Her research has focused on the effect of changing ocean conditions on the ecology of marine mammals. In 2005, she received an Environmental Hero Award from NOAA for her “tireless efforts to preserve and protect our nation’s environment.”

Carol is a founding board member and researcher with Oikonos Ecosystem Knowledge, a non-profit organization. She has worked on seabird research and created outreach education activities for educators and communities. She recently completed a project on risk assessment of vessel traffic on the endangered Blue and Humpback whales. For 25 years she has been leading Natural History trips in Baja California, Alaska, the Gulf of the Farallones, and Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuaries. Her experience as a teacher, naturalist, scientist and avid sailor make her an ideal person to share the wonders of the marine environment, and the value of conservation.

    Anyone want to meet up at Tiburon Grill for a Happy Hour drink at 5:15? We can walk to Corinthian Yacht Club from there, leaving Tiburon Grill at 6:15. It's a 10 or 15 minute slow walk.

    There sure is a lot of wildlife just here in Saualito. So far a Pelican landed on my dock and decieded to Sun himself. There are the nightly Giant Blue Egrets and most recently a whale stopped by. (That really scared me). Of course the seals are out every day.

      I'd still like to come see your boat one of these days. I met you at Guaymas at a happy hour, probably 6 months ago. Being an avid sailor, I'm curious about the boat.

      March 1, 2013

    • Peter S.

      You are always welcome to see the boat. I am taking private lessions and when I am done you are welcome to go sailing.
