  1. As this year ends I congratulate the Kitsap Sun for their dedication to the environmental side of the spectrum. Certainly the coverage given by this particular reporter, Christopher Dunagan, has been spot on in coverage of the Southern Resident Killer Whale issues.

  2. UPDATE, Jan. 2
    The Center for Whale Research has announced that J-2, known as “Granny,” has apparently died. The oldest orca among the three Southern Resident pods, Granny was one of the first Southern Residents identified when Ken Balcomb began his Orca Survey in 1976. At the time, she was estimated to be at least 45 years old and probably in her 70s, putting her likely age at more than 100. Ken’s tribute to Granny can be read on the Center for Whale Research website. More to come.
