@Brianna, hi, the rubbing beach underwater cam wont be playing live again next year-the orca season here is July-October-the cam will be restarted just before the whales come back. :)

Any idea when the Rubbing Beach Underwater cam will be live again? I have been checking for the past few days and it has been showing highlights.

Hi Sally, All good here, didn't feel it, no damage anywhere. A humpback spent the night in the distance "moaning", not unusual but interesting.

Hi all. Just heard about the earthquakes that sounded like they were around your region. Hope everything is still in place. Will be interesting to see if there is any changes to any whales behaviour over the next day or two. Take care xx

I am seeing what appear to be porpoise or dolphin with some orca just now. From the notes, I am assuming that this is the A34s? Do the seals/porpoise/dolphins know the difference between the resident pods and the Bigg's pods and do they feel safe with the resident pods?
Jen@Calgary
28 Sep 2018 19:37:16 PDT

Is that an echo from the humpback?

Charles, while I know Orcalab can comment about the Northern Residents, I believe their siteings are much more infrequent than 5 years ago because of the lack of Salmon. They must be going north towards Alaska. Our Southern Residents are now infrequently seen in the San Juan Islands. Use to be you could always count on seeing them return in the summer. Now only on occassion. The lack of salmon on the West coast is being escalated through government, including removal of dams, so the Salmon can spawn. We have recently lost a baby and 4 year old in the Southern Residents. NOAA, Canadian government, commercial and tribal fishing are all involved to plan for sustained Salmon for us and our beloved Orcas.

@Jen :) that is the link to live. I always have to double click the file for it to play live once it's in my player-if I just push the play arrow I get the same short audio clip-sorry not very tech savvy- with words and such. :) it will work honest :)
Addie@CRiver

Thanks Addie, I tried the link you provided and got a small audio clip that I was able to play. Is there a live-feed hydrophone link as well? Thanks!
Jen@Calgary
24 Sep 2018 14:30:40 PDT

Team, I am looking for a newsletter article on the orca. Do you have anything you can share with like minded folk in Australia? Migration would be a good topic or family bonds or even communication? Please drop me an email to discuss further. Cheers, L
