Rachel Clark, author of just-released "The Blackfish Prophecy," a work of fiction set in Washington state about wild orcas that shows the ancient bond between humans and whales and questions whether orcas belong in captivity. Her book has received praise from Dr. Jane Goodall and Tim Zimmerman, Associate Producer and Co-Writer of "Blackfish." As Howard Garrett, co-director of Orca Network said, “'The Blackfish Prophecy' opens many doors to understanding and possibilities for living as members of the family of life on Earth.”
While in college, Rachel worked with captive Beluga whales and dolphins, then encountered killer whales swimming free in their home waters. For the last twenty years, she’s devoted her career as a science and environment writer to conveying the wonders of nature. "The Blackfish Prophecy" is her first book.
