Dr. Joe Gaydos, of the SeaDoc Society on Orcas, is being honored with the 2014 Seattle Aquarium Conservation Research Award at the annual Chairman’s Dinner on Jan. 16 at the aquarium.

As a symbol of the Seattle Aquarium’s commitment to and participation in scientific research, each year the board of directors makes a research grant to the Seattle Aquarium Research Center for Conservation and Husbandry in honor of an individual who demonstrates leadership in his or her field. This award of $10,000 is given in the recipient’s name.

The SeaDoc Society, founded in 1999, conducts and sponsors scientific research in the inland waters of the Pacific Northwest, also known as the Salish Sea. SeaDoc strives to find science-based solutions for marine wildlife in the Salish Sea using a multi-species approach.
