10-21 Southern Resident Killer Whales - Rachel Schoeler
Join us Oct. 21st at 2:30pm PST (5:30pm EST) for a call about the endangered Southern Resident Killer Whales. Rachel will be talking about the whales, the threats they are facing and the role we all play in protecting them.
This call will be the first one trialling our new translation service. For those looking to listen in French, please call the conference line at (866) 512-0904 and then type in the meeting number 8980978. When it asks whether you are the host of the meeting, do not type anything, just wait. You will still need to login to the Webex call to see the presentation, but you will hear all the audio in french via the live translation on the conference line. You will want to mute the audio and microphone from Webex (and your computer) so you don't create any feedback. If you would like to ask questions, we encourage you to ask via the chat box or you can ask on your phone connection via the interpreter and she will convey the questions on your behalf.
If you have any questions for about participating in French, please contact [email protected]
