Beam Reach is for you if you want to:
  -- study endangered orcas and their ecosystem, from salmon to phytoplankton
  -- use advanced bioacoustic tools in your own project
  -- network with experts in killer whale conservation
  -- learn to sail a biodiesel-electric catamaran
  -- explore the San Juan Islands in the Pacific Northwest
