“Your talk at graduation was powerful and moving…Thanks for such an uplifting talk.”

                                    Zac Ipsa Landa, Regenerative Design and Nature Awareness,    Bolinas, CA

 

“You offer more bubblegum for the brain than anyone I know.”

                                    Steve Klavin, Senior Biology Major, Western Washington University

 

 “Randy Eaton has more camera presence and audience appeal than anyone we’ve had on the show.”

                                  Jake Haslekorn, Producer, “Animals, Animals,   Animals,” ABC TV National News

 

“He’s such a good story-teller I thought he must be from the South.”  
                                   Ken Wilber, Editor, Shambhala Press

 

 

“I have had quite a lot of higher education, and rarely have I encountered as inspiring a lecturer as Randall Eaton. Not only was I  on the edge of my seat for the duration of his presentation, I left feeling informed and deeply
excited about a topic (Orcas) that I  previously knew almost nothing about. I now want to learn more and
 even get involved in Orca study and preservation in some way.”

                                    Tatiana Irvine, Gaia University

 

"Randall Eaton's recent lecture on his research and experiences with large predators, with a particular focus on the Orca, was a pleasure to witness. Our family was engaged from beginning to end and the content was captivating for all of us - from our young wide-eyed boys to us older 'educated' adults. Especially appealing was the breadth of inquiry Dr. Eaton shared with us - from traditional animal behavior research to cutting-edge applications of field theory to the social sciences - all told through great personal experiences and humor. We would all enjoy spending more time in his presence."

                                   The Tolson Family, Sonoma County, CA

 

“Randall Eaton's fascinating presentation left me stunned by the orca--not only by its magnificence and beauty,
 but also by the deeper lessons we as a human species can learn from them.”
                                   Robin Bliss-Wagner,  Fort Bragg


“With compassion and respect, Dr. Randall Eaton brought to our college and community a profound glimpse into that exceptional relationship that exists between humans and the captivating orca. The candid and heartfelt way in which Dr. Eaton spoke brought his knowledge and experience to the audience in a very engaging manner. When he spoke of the highly intelligent orcas bringing their calves to meet his research team; his enthusiasm was infectious and I don’t think there was anyone present there who was not dreaming of travelling on such a trip. Informative and inspiring; it’s clear that Dr. Eaton is a visionary, and his passion for his subject draws the listeners in,  producing an event that enables the audience to leave with new ideas and intriguing new ways of seeing and engaging the natural world around them.”

                                Misty Bateman; Assistant to the Vice-President of Academic Affairs,

                                Northern Wyoming Community College District

 

“My heart was deeply moved by the stories that Randall brought to life with his intimate photography of Orcas and the poetic words that brought his experiences to life for the audience.  Randall's Orca presentation has the ability to spark creative personal reflection and to open space for the impossible to be welcomed in.”
                                Kymberly Kline, Regenerative Design and Nature Awareness, Marin County, CA

 

 

“I really enjoyed the Orca lecture. I am amazed at the information presented, and touched by the connection and respect Randall Eaton has with these magnificent beings. Very inspiring. My kids age 7 and 9 were absolutely fascinated as well.”

                                Marianne  Nielsen, Regenerative Design and Nature Awareness, Marin County, CA

 

“I found you mesmerizing, with the rare ability to be a beacon of hope, while still remaining absolutely truthful. I really appreciate your commitment to come visit us.”

                                 Liam Purvis, Regenerative Design and Nature Awareness, Marin County, CA

 

 “The most genuine and heartfelt presentation on human interaction with wildlife I have ever experienced."

                                 Rahim St John, Stinson Beach, CA / London, UK

 

There were many things almost magical about Dr. Eaton’s presentation in Sheridan.  I found him to be a quiet-spoken, confident, compassionate presence who created a context for his specific topic—Orca—by sharing his work with large land mammals.  His respect and affection for both was obvious and inspiring.  Probably without realizing it, Dr. Eaton is a role model for helping others understand how to relate to, how to reach out to, our non-human friends.  His experience with and comments about Orca fascinated us.  He shared scenarios about Orca behavior that resulted from, it seemed to me, their pure analysis and synthesis.  He explained what he believes to be Orca’s living and perceiving in the world of holography and this physiology’s relationship to Orca’s communication.  He indirectly challenged us to believe, to hope, that Orca and humans will one day communicate with each other.  I left Dr. Eaton’s presentation having resolved that one day, I will swim with, touch, and communicate with this magnificent kin.”

“I am so pleased to give an endorsement. The memory of your lecture still warms my heart and ignites my passion for Cetaceans.  Dr. Eaton led us on the journey of his research with predators. He started out with big cats, their behaviors, their hunting prowess, their strength. He did this with his field and zoo research in a story form with individual cats. We could feel their strength and learned the hierarchy of their prides. He used this
basis when he transitioned to Orcas. His twenty years of field research with the orcas brought many stories
of the orca's society, their specialized predatory hunting, including photos and documentation of individual
orcas. I am passionate about dolphins and it easily transferred to the amazing Orca because of Dr. Eaton.”

’I am a physician, have a bachelor's degree in marine biology and am a scuba instructor.

 I was fortunate to attend a talk by Dr. Randall Eaton about orca's.  To say his talk was exciting is a gross understatement!  He was give about an hour and a half to talk, yet 3 hours later 90+% of the audience (including me) was still there.  His oratory style is excellent.  His diction, vocabulary and delivery is very good.  He captures the audience quickly and keeps them. I whole heartedly recommend Dr. Eaton's orca program!’
