William F Perrin, Ph.D. started his career with the National Marine Fisheries Service of NOAA in 1966. He obtained his Ph.D. in zoology from UCLA, under Ken Norris and Carl Hubbs; his thesis dealt with the taxonomy of the dolphins dying in the tuna purse-seine fishery in the eastern tropical Pacific. Much of his research in following decades involved dolphin ecology. A past president of the Society for Marine Mammalogy and editor of Marine Mammal Science, he is presently chair of the IUCN Cetacean Red List Authority, Scientific Councilor for Aquatic Mammals of the Convention on Migratory Species, a member of the U.S. delegation to the Scientific Committee of the IWC, Associate Editor of the Journal of Mammalogy, and chair of the Committee on International Relations of the Society for Marine Mammalogy.
