This Week in Whales: June 30 – July 8 2019

Welcome to This Week in Whales for June 30 – July 8 2019!

Welcome back to This Week in Whales! 

This past week we celebrated Canada Day here in British Columbia and across the Salish Sea it was Independence Day for our American friend!

First off, Skaana host Mark Leiren-Young made two guest appearances! The first was on The Public Circle Podcast with Green MLA Adam Olsen where he talked about the Southern Resident Orcas and how he started telling their stories.  July 8th Mark talked about the Southern Resident’s return to the Salish Sea – and the new baby, J56 – with Adam Stirling on CFAX Radio.

And now here’s some incredible breaking news that came in as we were writing this post: the latest Southern Resident is a girl! Read about her here in this article from CNN!

And now, here are the stories about oceans, the environment and important issues that we’ve shared this past week:
