Pierre, the Orca Whisperer

Pierre Robert de Latour

Pierre Robert de Latour began his scientific background after his studies in laboratory biological analysis. 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 analysis 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 analysis in food samples by gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometer through 2012.

During this professional scientific activity, Pierre began ORCA expeditions in Norway in 1998 as an underwater guide and safety diver with the Team Orca Norway. In 25 years, he performed more than 7,500 successful underwater interactions and guided more than 2,000 divers in close-encounter dives with orcas and whales in Norway.

Designer USEA network

Pierre Robert de Latour is also the designer of the USEA network and became an  international speaker in 2012. He, along with three other authors, have 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. This exceptional finding became obvious over the years, that the presence of these cetaceans changed the lives of those who approached them, and these changes are always towards a "better being", an improvement, a "mending".

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

Cetody Sound Healing.
