You may remember my previous blog posting on Terri Irwin, the widow of Steve Irwin, and her family helping with whale research at OSU (“Crocodile Hunter Widow Terri Irwin to Launch Whale Research at OSU”). This week, the Irwin family is expected to be at Oregon State University to announce a donation for two humpback whale research projects for Oregon State’s Marine Mammal Institute that will gather information on the marine mammal species. I read in a report from the Oregonian that ‘research teams will head to Alaska and the American Samoas to study humpback whale breeding, foraging, migration and stock identification.’ Exciting stuff!
Terri Irwin, a Eugene native, and her family are well-known and respected animal wildlife conservationists. A huge thanks goes out to them for their support! Here’s a photo of Terri and her children Bindi and Bob:
