Sep 28, 2016

"People of the North Olympic Peninsula involved in conservation work light up when they hear the name “Pete Schroeder”. That’s because somewhere along the line he has helped them advance their cause. Although Pete’s career revolved around marine mammal health and husbandry as a researcher and clinician, his community service has reflected a Salish Sea-wide vision of ecosystem health.

"Pete is a warm-hearted, generous, humble, and tireless supporter of others carrying the torch for healthy ecosystems and healthy wildlife. No one knows this better than the Marine Science Center staff and volunteers who received his help on three key projects: the Orca Project, theMarine Mammal Stranding Network, and the Gray Whale Project."
