Jim Darling has led research programs on whales for over 25 years and has written many scientific and popular publications, including Gray Whales.

His interest began when surfing alongside them off the west coast of British Columbia.

His primary studies include long-term investigations of humpback whales throughout the North Pacific.

Jim was a founder and executive director of West Coast Whale Research Foundation, now the Pacific WildLife Foundation, and is on the advisory board of the Whale Trust, Maui.

Since 1997, Maui has been the base for his study on the function of the humpback whale song. When not in Hawaii, he divides his time between Vancouver and Tofino, BC.
