Audio streaming ok here, Nova. Perhaps someone can help you if you say how you are trying to access it. No need to provide your full address by the way, Port McNeill is fine.

Small quiet group of 5-6 orca close to shoreline passed Ella Point travelling west at 1800 hrs. Long dive before surfacing again close to shore. Probably Bigg's.

Very sad & unusual news from the orca strandings in New Zealand. I hope they figure out what caused it as orcas don't typically strand. Very odd & concerning situation. Also I have a question for the HB experts out there. Nice to hear Arial & KC are back in action however since Apollo is with them at the moment, does anyone know if Apollo is their sibling. I am curious as always. Thanks.

Thanks kindly, Paul and Helena, for spreading the word about thie Kickstarter and our efforts to "listen for whales" in the U.S. I'm looking forward to sharing with you and the Orcalive community any good technological ideas that come out of the Seattle engineers with whom we'll build a new web-based listening app for this June. In the interim, please know that I've always found this site inspirational -- both in the lively exchange of information between the comment streams, and in the technological feats you've performed in delivering live ocean sound to the web. With you've again impressed me with your quantum leaps forward in streaming video from the wilderness. My deepest gratitude for your decades of innovation and endurance.

It's difficult to mix fundraising with the incredibly sad orca news from New Zealand this morning, but time is almost out for the Kickstarter campaign started by Scott Viers a few weeks ago. This is the last day! Scott has achieved his initial goal of $15,000 and is within sight of his stretch goal of $25,000 which will enable him to do much more. Please help Scott if you can, and spread the word to your friends and others on your lists. Here is the link to Scott's Kickstarter campaign: Thanks very much! Paul & Helena

Hello! I haven't been on here in a while, and I just tried to turn on the audio, but got an error message that I cannot download the windows media player as I am on a mac. How do mac users access audio? I used to listen all the time, so am hoping there is a solution. Thanks and I hope everyone is having a good day!

Hi everyone, Scott Viers, who with his dad Val has created a fabulous hydrophone network around the San Juan Islands and has been (among other important things) instrumental in bringing the noise issue faced by Southern Resident orcas to the attention of the public and governments, has a Kickstarter campaign going that's aimed at raising funds to help him upgrade his hydrophones and build an app that will enable people anywhere to tune into the orcas of the Salish Sea and the environment they live in. Scott is aiming to raise $15,000 USD and so far has raised $11,000. There are 14 days to go. Please help Scott if you can, and spread the word to your friends and others on your lists. Here is The link to the Kickstarter campaign: Thanks very much! Paul & Helena

@Sally,it is a terribly sad story but we have the same problem here. Scientists discovered that many years ago when tissue samples were taken from our orcas years ago. It is an ongoing global issue that I would love to see resolved,somehow.
