Humpback whales resurging in Salish Sea – KING

More good news…

After traveling north for the summer, humpback whales have migrated back to the Salish Sea. The Pacific Whale Watch Association (PWWA) said they’ve resurfaced in record numbers. “We’ve seen more humpbacks this year than ever, and they’re popping up now everywhere, in the San Juan Islands, Georgia Strait, Strait of Juan de Fuca, Haro Strait, Rosario Strait, Saanich Inlet – repopulating the areas where they were once abundant pre-whaling,” said Captain Mark Malleson, veteran whale watch captain for Prince of Whales Whale Watching. ” Very exciting time out there now.” Kate Clark reports.
