A selection of must reads about Dartmouth alumni making news around the world.
Pete McBride '93

Icy Encounter

McBride traveled to Norway's fjords to photograph wild orcas for Smithsonian Magazine. He didn't just take pictures from a boat—he got to swim alongside the killer whales. McBride writes:

I never knew how powerful an orca’s sonar pulse could be until I got into the water and felt one reverberate deep in my chest, like the bass at a rock concert. The sensation was so weirdly moving I hooted through my snorkel, because when a six-ton orca swims directly at you and pings you with his echolocation device—trying to identify who and what is swimming in his Arctic hunting waters—you realize you are in a completely alien world.
