Also, Saturday May 14th is the Penn Cove Water Festival in Coupeville on Whidbey Island, WA. This year we celebrate our 20th year with a fabulous Orca Wheel design by artist Roger Purdue. The whale wheel was designed by Roger, and six local carvers carved the orcas. The whale wheel is to help us remember the history of the orca captures in Penn Cove, and the threats the orcas face today, and to encourage us to take better care of them.

I was reading the Vancouver Sun this morning and the T's made the front page. On page A3 a short story on them IDed one male as T102 and there was a new born calf (still with its orangish hue) with them... Now we know which ones they were.
I also noticed the photo on page A3 the female (immature male?) has a notch 1/3 of the way down the back of its dorsal.
