I will be away on Cracroft Island observing northern resident killer whale behaviour until September. When I get back I will be extending my acoustic research on Luna by analyzing Orcalab's recordings (about 110 hours). Have a great summer!
Springer (A73) returns! She was identified in the Robson Bight Michael Bigg Ecological Reserve with her great aunt Yakat (A11) who has two offspring and the three adult males (the A36 matriline). She was photo-identified by the park wardens and acoustically identified by Orcalab.
Our 2003 Luna Stewardship Journals are now online.
