CEO & Designer

The Orca Whisperer

Pierre Robert de Latour

Pierre Robert de Latour began his scientific background after his studies in laboratory biological analyzes. From 1984 to 1988, he assisted biologists in two different biomedical laboratories (biochemistry, hematology, serology, microbiology and hormonology). After 4 years in human biology, he passed the entrance examination at the District Laboratory of the Landes (Mont de Marsan) where he started with the analyzes of veterinary biology (microbiology, parasitology, serology, hematology, biochemistry, food bacteriology, necropsy). In 1992, he developed a food chemistry department within the Laboratory and performed the physicochemical micro-pollutants research analyzes in food samples by gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometer through 2012.

During this scientific activity, Pierre began ORCA expeditions in Norway in 1998 as an underwater guide and safety diver with the Team Orca Norway. In 20 years, he performed more than 6,000 successful underwater interactions and guided more than 1,000 divers in close-encounter dives with orcas in Norway.

Designer USEA network

Pierre Robert de Latou is also the designer of the USEA network and became an  international speaker in 2012. He, along with two other authors, has published a behavioral study about Norwegian orcas in the scientific magazine "Scientific Report", part of the Nature Publishing Group. He is also the author of the bestseller book "Frère des orques" (Brotherhood of Orcas)

During these underwater encounters, he discovered the importance of the sounds produced by the large cetaceans. A special finding became obvious over the years, that the presence of these cetaceans change the lives of those who approach them, and these changes are always towards a "better being", an improvement, a "mending".

The hypothesis that cetaceans use sounds for healing themselves became obvious and is the basis for this new holistic therapy:

Cetosonotherapy.
