Sightings Report for August 15th 2018
We are half way through August already and our encounters have been epic!! The smoke has hung around and there have been more fires reported, making the province of BC declare a state of emergency.
The fleet encountered several pods of Biggs orca'a (mammal eaters) as they scanned the coast of the San Juan Islands for potential prey. This ecotype of killer whale spends the majority of their time hunting and work together to catch/kill prey items. One group identified as the T2C's have a 13 year old male with scoliosis. He is slow and struggles to keep up, so his family will always come back to check on him and make sure he eats too!!! Its incredible to see these intellegent animals work as a team and care for one another.
~ Stay tuned!
