Biologist warns it’s ‘past the time’ to act for Southern resident killer whales – KING TV

We held meetings after meetings, and passed a four bills that should ultimately help with some of the needs of the orcas, long term. But nothing in the last year has stopped the continued slide towards extinction, with three more Orcas now dead. Long time orca scientist Ken Balcomb has given up hope of saving them, now feels he is simply chronicling their extinction. I agree with Ken, it’s time we stop pretending we are going to save this pod, and see what we can do to save the rest of the orca population of the Salish Sea.

On the one year anniversary of J35’s journey pushing her dead calf around the Salish Sea, one biologist said the Southern resident orcas will likely go extinct.
