📆 1976 📆 • • • • • • • 
Sandwiched between my two favourites!

Yesterday @maisie_williams and I were lucky enough to talk with Ken Balcomb of the  @centerforwhaleresearch for @searchingforchinook.

This is me holding the first ever book of Photo ID’s of the southern resident killer Whales, Ken did for the Center In 1976.... this was a moment.

Happy World Whale Day!!! I'm challenging everyone to go 100% plastic free this weekend. Let's save our Southern Residents🖤🖤🐋🐳 #WorldWhaleDay #NOAA #SaveTheFishies #SavetheSRKW #MermaidLife #plasticfree #SearchingForChinook
Always a great day when we are filming with @orcawild 
The first time @maisie_williams saw the SRKW was with captains @orcawild & @hysazu.

Post 1/some.  How can salmon 🐟, trees 🌲, and wolves 🐺 be so closely linked?
-
It’s no surprise that I’ve fallen hard for the PNW and its amazing biodiversity 🍂🐿- biodiversity which is in danger. I want to share with you the complexity and delicacy of its ecosystems and it gets COOL!
-
First, let’s see how salmon FEED FORESTS. The trees surrounding the rivers and streams that host yearly salmon spawning depend on these fish to survive. Why? 🤷🏼‍♀️
-
After spending 2-4 yrs in the ocean getting nice & fat (and acting as a food source for orcas 🐳, remember), chinook salmon for example return to their home streams in the PNW where they mate and….die.
-
BUT, this is amazing news for their babs annnd trees because they have returned full of nitrogen and other nutrients which are deposited into the soil. On top of that, poop from predators, e.g. 🐻 and 🦅, adds even more nitrogen to the soil which is sucked up by trees through their roots.
-
According to science, up to 70% of nitrogen in the surrounding vegetation is from salmon! And sitka trees actually grow 3x faster when ‘fertilised’ by salmon! If these salmon were lost we’d see a cascade of impacts through the entire system. 🐳 🌲 🐺 🐤
-
Not only are salmon vital for orcas, but they’re vital for the forests!  Can you guess where wolves play a role in this??

🔱Orca Action of the day🔱: .

Let’s all write handwritten letters to protect our 75 Southern Resident Orcas from extinction. . ✍🏼Breaching the lower four snake river dams is the ONLY way to save the dwindling Chinook Salmon and 75 Southern Resident Orcas. These dams need to be breached IMMEDIATELY!🐟🐬. .
.
.
. 🔹Snake River Chinook Salmon Facts:
. •1. Historical Chinook Salmon numbers for the Snake River range from 10-16 million per year.
.
. •2. In 2018 Chinook Salmon were forecasted at 100K, the forecast fell way short and only 67K actually returned.
.
. •3. In 2019 the Chinook Salmon forecast is 48K. Only 8,200 of those Chinook are wild salmon.
.
.
. . 🆘 Breaching the Lower Four Snake River Dams is the ONLY bold, sustainable, realistic, intelligent, reasonable solution to save our Southern Resident Orcas and the Chinook Salmon from extinction. .

@govinslee failed to take any bold actions to help save the SRKWs from extinction. Him trying to run for president is comical. A true leader will do anything in their power to save the orcas and the declining chinook salmon as well as the thousands of innocent seals and sea lions that are being mindlessly killed by your inaction. Be a true leader and breach the lower four Snake River dams and only then will people take you seriously. Don't be remembered as the horrible governor who lacked the compassion and balls to help save them all.
.
Please watch a short film on the importance and benefits of breaching the useless and costly lower four Snake River Dams to save the Southern Resident Killer Whales from extinction.

@sophie.greeneyes 
Goodmorning folks! Today is a great day to help the orca's and salmon out: you can write to @govinslee to implore him to breach the lower 4 snake river dams this year! It is vital that this gets done asap so the salmon can return to the salty waters of the Salish Sea again. Orca's, salmon and other wildlife will thrive within a year!!! Lets make this happen, together we are one strong voice! Thank you!

Join the journey. Documentary coming soon @searchingforchinook @alexinwonderlust #searchingforchinook
Join the journey @searchingforchinook and don't stop believing! 💃It can get bit overwhelming if you are the sort that gives a hoot about our planet and the beings that reside upon it. It feels like too big of a battle but as Jane Goodall says "there is still so much left to fight for". And small everyday changes in our lives can add up collectively to immense victories. I have nothing but love and admiration for the dedicated women who are @searchingforchinnook. If you want to know more about the Southern Residents and how we can all help save them from extinction head on over. 🐟🐟🐟🐟🐟 #searchingforchinook

We’re receiving so many pictures and videos from our friends around the #PNW about the recent Superpod!  What is a Superpod?! Superpod refers to the social event when all three of the Southern Resident orca pods – J, K, and L – are present in the same place at the same time; a sort of ritualistic greeting ceremony when all the pods are socializing and interacting together.

Such exciting news to hear all the pods are together with a new baby! 📸: @slatermoorephotography ... Epic as always!

Amazing photograph & caption by our family @orcabytes : .

Family above all else. 
If only humanity could put others needs before their own like the Southern Resident Killer Whales do. Watching starving mothers feed their own babies before they take a single bite was sobering. 
Remember to boycott Chinook Salmon when dining out.

Transient orca get a kill in the gulf Islands. Please excuse my squeeeeing like a little girl.
New Zealand killer whale culture is amazing. They are known to play with the locals at the killer surf spots. Public involvement and awareness is also much better overall in New Zealand. During our time down there with the Orca Research Trust, sighting reports were being made by adults and children who would know which individuals they were reporting by name and they would know to include direction of travel, individuals present, time of day and behavior.

Full page in today’s Seattle Times about the importance of breaching the 4 lower Snake River dams to ensure the survival of chinook salmon and the orcas that rely on them. #orcas #freethesnake #killerwhale #southernresidents #searchingforchinook
🐳 How do you ID a whale?...
.
.
With patience, persistence, help and this handy guide from @centerforwhaleresearch 🤣...
.
.
But really;
• individuals have distinctive eye patches, saddle patches and dorsal fins!...
We practiced as best we could over the summer and learned to ID a handful of the whales without having to check the guide but the pros at this are definitely @seahumansphotog and @hysazu 📷 ...

⁉️ Who are the Southern Residents ⁉️...
.
.
So since we have lots of new followers and everyone is winding down a little over the holiday we thought we would take things back to basics!...
.
.
The Southern residents are an endangered population of now 74 individual orca that live in the Salish Sea and are swiftly approaching extinction! They are made up of 3 pods - J, K and L Pod!...
.
.
They are a fish eating species with around 90% of their diet comprised of Chinook salmon, many runs of which are also endangered!...
.
.
With a lack of Chinook at the top of the list these whales are facing an enormous number of complicated threats. Our documentary ‘Searching For Chinook’ aims to raise awareness of the issues they are facing with a global audience to bring about change before it is too late!

My final drawing for this semester! If you know me you know I love whales and dolphins and a big part of my life mission is to educate people and shed light on these amazing creatures. We need to end captivity and promote conservation. This was a photo from my favorite photographer @paulnicklen Please also check out @richardobarry @dolphin_project  @sealegacy  @searchingforchinook
Thoughts and post by @seahumansphotog 💭 ・・・
Orca lovers, you might not want to read this post as it might trigger some of the trauma we all endured this summer, but for the rest of you: COMMIT TO YOUR MEMORY WHAT I AM ABOUT TO SHARE WITH YOU. This was one of the most tragic moments I’ve ever witnessed, and I’m a nurse. This was so heartbreaking and traumatizing that I didn’t speak about it for four months. This is the morning that J35 Tahlequah finally let go of her deceased baby. She may have even let her go right at this very moment. I was standing at the Westside Preserve that morning watching this really unusual social behavior. J31 Tsuchi, J42 Echo, and the rock who refused to leave her side through the whole grieving process, J36 Alki, were surrounding her on all sides. For what seemed like an eternity, they forced her head to stay above water in what I imagine is the world record for longest spyhop. I wish I could speak whale because this was an unusual moment that has lead me to two heartbreaking conclusions. This may have been the moment she dropped her baby and the others refused to let her retrieve the body, encouraging her to move on in her grieving process. My other conclusion is that she had already dropped the baby that morning and was grieving to the point of suicide, so they held her up to the surface so she couldn’t drown herself. As I stood there with tears on my face watching this, I thought “If only we got serious about restoring rivers for salmon, maybe this wouldn’t be happening.......” There are individuals in the ocean who are more empathetic than we are, and they are dying because of our choices. Think about that the next time you eat salmon. Think about that the next time you litter. Think about that the next time you fill your car up with gasoline. Think about that the next time you vote...

Time to make life Sacred again! Breach the lower four snake river dams NOW @govinslee

Immensely beautiful, reverent, powerful video & caption from our very dear friend 
@brandoyelavichexplorer

Recently in Canada, there have been an alarming number of sea lions washing up, it has been proven that these animals have been shot and killed, for what?

During my time kayaking around Vancouver island I was blessed to spend time with so many beautiful creatures. Sealions are wonderful curious animals, they would cruise along next to our kayaks for hours at a time. They would play and interact with us, ducking and diving and splashing water at the boats. They are huge, powerful creatures yet they live with such grace and agility through the water. 
These creatures are supposed to be here. This is their home. 
Humans come and take their food, destroy their habitat and now, people want to slaughter them because they are eating their natural food resource. 
Every time a sealion washes up, shot in the head, I will remember them surfing the huge waves along side us. Slicing through the 4 meters swells on the west coast, glancing back when we couldn’t keep up as if to say “hurry up, what are you waiting for”. I will remember the call of a mother sealion as she brings her baby back from playing in the surf. I will remember that the ocean is their home, and it does not belong to us.

This is Sara...and she is a dear family friend. Not everyone feels the same though, because they obviously have never had a personal interaction with a seal. Ten pinnipeds (seals and sea lions) in these past couple of months have been murdered by humans in the Salish Sea under the false pre-conception they are the reason our salmon population is in decline. It’s so embarrassing being a human sometimes😑 
Let me quickly break it down....there are many sea and air creatures that predate on salmon which I will not name due to humans just adding them to the list of animals they will cull. Only 20% of a pinniped’s diet is salmon out of the 60 species they eat on a daily basis. Two important facts why the current trend of killing pinnipeds would be terrible for the Salish Sea (on top of the barbaric pointless act of killing innocent beings): 1. Transient Orcas are thriving because they have enough to eat (pinnipeds). Taking away their food source would put them in the same jeopardy as the starving SRKWs. They are currently trending 1090 successful pinniped hunts a year.
2. Pinnipeds actually eat a considerable amount of Hake which predate on Salmon much more than pinnipeds...in other words without the pinnipeds controlling the hake fish....the hake would wipe out what’s left of the salmon.
So what we do? Breach the Lower Four Snake River Dams! This will provide enough salmon for everyone including the most invasive species=homo sapiens. There will be literally no down sides for anyone when they are breached.

Culling Pinnipeds to protect salmon?! As the number of deceased Pinnipeds with bullet wounds washing up on the shores of the Salish sea rises, again we have to question WHY do we as humans have to disrupt the natural order of life?! Salmon is a food source to both Seals and Orca. Seals are a food source to Transient/Biggs killer whales. By culling Pinnipeds and not breaching the 4 lower snake river dams we are just jeopardising the existence of multiple marine species!

Every morning I spend some time with the Southern Residents to appreciate their existence here on Earth, for their loving kindness and their patience. It is hard to see when politicians, who have the ability to help, do nothing. Time is running out and we must keep the pressure up! Will you help by tagging, writing or calling @govinslee?

Critical information from the co-founders of @pnwprotectors ...
• • • • •
The Salish Sea is home to 2 different species of Orcas.
🐬🐬
74 salmon-eating Southern Resident Orcas and 510 mammal-eating Biggs/Transient Orcas. .

The two species of Orcas live in aqueous harmony in the same waters every day. The same polluted, loud, overfished waters .. and yet the Transient Orca population is thriving while the Southern Resident Orcas are starving, swimming near extinction. 
The glaringly obvious difference = Food! . .
.

There’s a misguided notion drifting around that blames Pinnipeds (seals & sea lions) as the true culprits to our extreme decline in salmon in the Salish Sea. But then when one dives deeper into scientific data there’s evidential proof that shows that pinnipeds consume around 60 different species of fish including Salmon. And Hake, which are known to prey upon precious Salmon. .
.

The Transient Orcas are spectacularly awesome at managing pinniped numbers and consume around 1090 per year! .

There’s been a heinous rash of culling pinnipeds throughout the Salish Sea and it’s time we all speak up for the voiceless: 
Our Transient Orcas rely upon Pinnipeds and the Pinnipeds consume copious numbers of predatory fish which would otherwise consume Salmon. 
Nature is brilliant when we let everything thrive! .

We, you and I, make a difference.  Our daily decisions and actions shape our beautiful world, either through inaction and apathy or through inspiration and motivation.  Let's be the freaking change we want in this world.  You are more powerful than you know!! • • • • •
Action of the day from @pnwprotectors
🔹Orca Action of the day:🔹
Call Governor Jay Inslee every day, no matter where you live and ask him to breach the lower four snake river dams in 2018. We have 74 Southern Resident Orcas starving to death on the brink of extinction. When these dams are breached there will be one million more Salmon within 14 months. This is the only sustainable and realistic way to save our Orcas.

So excited to announce that myself and documentary @searchingforchinook have partnered up with the incredible @4ocean 🌀

This is exciting for so many reasons... the main one being that every bracelet you buy from @4ocean 1LB of trash/rubbish is pulled from the ocean! The work they do towards creating a cleaner, plastic free ocean is crucial... THANK YOU for helping our marine buddies guys!
