Book Launch and Webinar – Sea Otters: A Survival Story
May 7, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Bateman Foundation hosts a Nature X live webinar featuring writer, conservation photographer and filmmaker Isabelle Groc and a virtual launch of her new children’s book, Sea Otters: A Survival Story .
Groc specializes in endangered species and the relationships between people and the natural world. She grew up in France and now lives in Vancouver and on Salt Spring. She is a fellow of the Explorers Club and the Royal Geographical Societies of Canada and the UK.
Her work has appeared in international media including National Geographic News, BBC Wildlife, and Canadian Wildlife. She is the author of two non fiction children’s books on wildlife conservation. With the return of sea otters on the Pacific Coast, Groc has had the opportunity to witness an extraordinary ecological story unfold in her backyard of British Columbia for over ten years. She spent extended periods of time documenting sea otters and the coastal communities they influence.
