SRV Saoirse

Patagonia Projects was created by Keri Pashuk and Greg Landreth as a means to tie together scientific, education and adventure initiatives in the remote regions of Chilean Patagonia using the sailing vessel Saoirse as a multi purpose platform.

Our first initiative was the Return to the Whales scientific study expeditions which took us to the Golfo de Penas and Golfo Tres Montes regions in Patagonia Chile.  Working with Dr. Vreni Häussermann and Dr. Carolina Gutstein to oversee the scientific program, we began the studies on  the worlds largest baleen whale mortality event in history.
