Brown Bag Lunch: Southern Resident Killer Whales in the Salish Sea

An extended clan of Orcinus orca known as the Southern Resident Killer Whales (SRKWs) socialize and forage in inland waters of Washington and British Columbia. People travel from around the globe to have a chance to glimpse them in their natural environment. The SRKWs form tight family bonds and offspring remain with their mothers their entire lives. They are intelligent, extremely social and undeniably charismatic, but unfortunately they are also very much at risk. Listed as endangered in 2005 their population has been slow to recover and their numbers are now at an all time low.

Certified marine naturalist Susan Marie Andersson has watched this wonderful iconic mammal from the shores of Bainbridge Island and will be talking about why they are in danger and what needs to be done to help them recover so that they are here for our future generations to experience.
