Keynote Speaker: Whitney Neugebauer

We’re very excited for this year’s keynote speaker, Whale Scout’s Executive Director, Whitney Neugebauer! Whitney Neugebauer completed degrees in Geology and Anthropology from Eckerd College prior to receiving her master’s degree in Marine and Environmental Affairs from the University of Washington. She went on to found Whale Scout in 2013. Previously, Whitney previously served on the board of Sound Action and she currently serves on the board of Friends of North Creek Forest. She believes that addressing the root cause of environmental degradation is key to recovering endangered Southern Resident orcas and the salmon they rely upon. Whale Scout aims to harness the passion of whale watchers into action, planting native trees and connecting to one’s individual watershed. If you plan on attending the Feast, please submit any questions you might have for Whitney to answer during the Q&A session to nrnc@nisquallyestuary.org.
