Josh McInnes has spent his whole life following marine mammals along the Pacific Coast. Growing up on Vancouver Island British Columbia Canada, Josh has spent the last decade studying the movements and behaviour of transient (Bigg’s) killer whales. His passion for killer whales encouraged him to develop the Transient Killer Whale Research Project. The project is a student-based citizen science initiative to observe and study mammal hunting killer whales along the Pacific coast. Josh also works as a Marine Science Educator at the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre, and aids in international research ranging from Eastern Australia, Sir Lanka, and Russia. Currently Josh serves as the Research Coordinator for Marine Life Studies located in Monterey Bay California where he is focusing on pelagic odontocetes.
