Default cetacean communication research

The Vancouver Canucks have the orca as their main logo.

Unfortunately they recently lost their series against the Vegas
Golden Knights. I think they would have better luck if
they donated more (or some?) money in support of the Southern
Resident orca pods, maybe including some to me for research into
cetacean communication :-) though that would require me
to do some work (not that my four components magickal stuff
isn’t work of sorts).

By the way, I heard on the radio that J35 has had a new calf.
(J35 is the orca mother who carried the dead body of her last
calf for a long period after its death a while ago.)

I do have some scientific expertise including in acoustics
and signal processing, and the Orca Hot Foot experience I
describe on http://www.nfld.com/~dalton/orca.html
is an extra motivation for me to help orcas, since while
it was partly a recognition of me, it was partly a call for
help from at least one captive orca, and I haven’t really lived
up to that call yet (I didn’t even email Canadian Senators
before their vote to ban future cetacean captivity in Canada
a while ago).

However since I have no background yet in cetacean research,
it will probably be hard for me to get a postdoctoral fellowship
in the subject, though of course I could collaborate with others
(possibly including a musician friend of mine who is currently
completing a Ph.D. in Linguistics at The University of Toronto,
though I haven’t yet approached her about it).

But of course they don’t have to give money to me, but at least
could give money to the Marina Mammal Research Unit at UBC.

Oops, that should be Marine, not Marina.

I thought you meant all the guys sitting around in boats drinking beer.
