Occasional Riled Up contributors  Wayne & Pam Osborn  are wildlife investigators and master photographers living in Western Australia. They focus much of their time and attention on documenting whales. Their efforts have provided valuable information regarding recovery of populations, migration patterns, marine habitat mapping, and conservation status of whales around Australia and elsewhere. The Osborn's represent a new face of conservation where dedicated individuals provide useful photographic documentation that assists over-stretched marine researchers and managers. The role of international dive tour companies and organizations also can assist.

A summary of the Osborn's efforts has just been published as:
