Kathy Heise began her involvement in cetacean research over 25 years ago as a lightkeeper, listening for the sounds of killer whales using a permanently-mounted hydrophone. She returned to UBC to study the ecology of Pacific white-sided dolphins and continues to be fascinated by them. Kathy is interested in the resident dolphins in the Strait of Georgia, particularly their foraging behaviour and prey choice. As a Research Associate at the Vancouver Aquarium she worked with colleagues to study how dolphins use echolocation to find and pursue prey and to detect and avoid underwater hazards such as nets. Kathy's current work focuses on the effects of underwater noise on marine mammals.
