Bob Boekelheide's lifelong interest has been in the ecology of marine vertebrates, particularly birds and mammals. Bob has an M.S. in Ecology from UC Davis and participated in several marine research projects to the Arctic, Antarctic, across the Pacific, and in California, including seven years as a biologist on the Farallon Islands. While in California, he coauthored a book and several papers about the marine ecology of nesting seabirds and marine mammals. A certificated teacher, Bob taught science and math in WA public schools for 13 years. He is the former director of the Dungeness River Audubon Center, a community nature center in Sequim, WA. As Bird Count chair for Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society, he has compiled the annual Sequim-Dungeness Christmas Bird Count and the Clallam County International Migratory Bird Count for over 20 years, along with helping to organize several other citizen-science projects on the north Olympic Peninsula. He enjoys spectacular areas of the Pacific Northwest and lives on the shores of Dungeness Bay with his wonderful wife Barbara.
