This Week in Whales: July 29 – August 4, 2019

By James Christensen – Staff Writer

Welcome to This Week in Whales for July 29 – August 4, 2019!

Welcome back to This Week in Whales! 

We’ve been hard at work here at Skaana this past week! August 8 marks the anniversary of the capture of Tokitae (Lolita), who  is still being made to perform at the Miami Seaquarium. The pressure is mounting to release her, especially with a new lawsuit against the Sequarium currently coming from members of the Lummi Nation.

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

Orcas are Majestic, Emotional Beings Who Have Children

Killer Whales Share Personality Traits with Humans, Chimpanzees

Meet the people behind Victoria’s pod of inflatable orcas

Lucky fisherman captures Orca-palooza on video near Salmon Cove

Mother orca Tahlequah and her dead calf one year later. How did she change the conversation?

To end off this week’s update, let’s look back on an episode of the Skaana Podcast – Elizabeth May on saving orcas, right whales, humans, & oceans!

And of course, if you’d like to see more from us and help Skaana in our fight for orcas, oceans and the environment feel free to support us on Patreon!
