Looks like our dear sperm whale has a name now:) I think I'll shorten it to Sam with no disrespect intended. Glad to hear he's still hanging around. That's wonderful.

I'll try to find something for you, Doug. We have described it but not sure in which paper & we're away just now.
02 Feb 2018 14:23:45 PST

Is there any technical information available about the hydrophone array network? I'm interested in how it's all configured and interconnected. Thanks!

Just watching the replay of the sunset at CP and saw a nice tight group cutting the corner into Blackney from Johnstone Strait...time was about 5pm. Gentle pink sunset...Corky on my mind and in my heart.
11 Jan 2018 19:16:44 PST

I am missing all these guys right now. They are all heavily in my thoughts. Glad to hear the 42's appear healthy, missing my little dude Surf even tho he's not exactly little. Lol. Always good to know my other boys Surge & Fife are around. Sigh... I miss them:)Obviously I'm having a very sentimental moment. My magical orca family, so much love to them all. Big hugs!
Patti @New West
11 Jan 2018 18:02:14 PST

Ahhh, the 42's along with A 5's,you are very lucky folks. :) I have to ask even tho I have a hunch about the answer. BUT was Kaikash seen with the 42's??

We are certain that we saw a humpback in Pearse Passage this morning. Is this possible at this time of year?

I used to listen to the audio feed on my iphone using FStream. In the last month or so this has not been working. Is the link to the audio feed changed? Or is there an alternate way to listen through my mobile device? Hate to be missing out on the wonderful sounds! Thanks folks.
04 Jan 2018 10:08:09 PST

30th Dec 0930. Small group of orca slowly travelling east down mid Johnstone Strait. Two adult males, and perhaps 6-8 smaller members. Followed respectfully by a water taxi !

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. What a lovely gift to have the A23's & 25's appear. It's so good to hear about those darlings:) Wishing everyone inc the orcas a brilliant New Year. May 2018 be blessed.

Thanks very much, Jan, and hi everyone! We can see that it's snowing on Hanson Island, perfect for a white Christmas scene to wake up to in the morning! Here's hoping all of you are enjoying this season of hope wherever you are, and like us, looking forward to a new year in which the world makes progress towards that ultimate goal, peace at last. Please take good care of yourselves and each other, and thank you so much for caring about whales and the world they (and we) inhabit. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

As Kelly and Kathy point out, today is the incredibly sad 48th anniverssary of Corky's capture. Here is a link to some thoughts: http://orcalab.org/2017/12/11/corkys-saddest-day-number-48/ Please light a candle for Corky today, and hold her in your hearts. Thank you!

j@colorado, I'm not sure if this helps, but I am on a mac, and can no longer listen to the audio because the plug-in called Flip4mac is no longer free. Does your computer have the plug in? What happens when you try to turn the audio on?
07 Dec 2017 14:52:03 PST

I am sure I'm just not finding the info but how can I access just the mics? From explore.org the underwater cams/mics are all on highlights so just trying to figure out how to access and listen to the mics here. Thanks!
