Orcas on the News

Local news coverage on KOMO mentioned the Salish Sea Hydrophone Network I wrote about in the last post. They compare two of the hydrophones and acknowledge that boat noise in our waters can have a detrimental effect on the endangered Southern Resident orca population. Click here to view the short video on KOMO's website or here for a text version.

Speaking of last post, we weren't the only ones watching the orcas pass through. Howard Garrett of Orca Network on Whidbey Island was on the water identifying the orcas. He took this great picture of J1 (right), known as Ruffles, and K12 (left), known as Sequim.
