>Who are the leading pilot whale experts (English speaking)?

There are probably several. The ones I am familiar with include: Sarah and
Jim Heimlich-Boran. Stan Minasian at the Marine Mammal Fund is well versed
in the political and conservation aspects. Bruce Mate has been involved
with the movements of individual pilots in the northwest Atlantic. Stan can
be reached at Fort Mason Center, Building E, San Francisco, California
94123. Sarah and Jim are in England. Bruce is at Oregon State
University/Hatfield Marine Science Center, Newport, Oregon.

Cheers,
