Ocean Song (You & I)

We are SO excited to announce the release of this incredibly moving song written by the very talented Lilly Ahlberg for ‘Searching for Chinook’. It has been such a pleasure watching this develop into a song that is more perfect than we could have imagined. It captures the beauty of San Juan Island and the magical ecosystem that our beloved orcas live in, as well as the all emotions we feel on this journey to save them. The music and video take us back to our summer filming and fills our hearts with nostalgia, love, hope and determination to ensure we see the day we can say this ecosystem and the Southern resident killer whales are thriving. We hope you...

Orca Poo

Who knew we would love talking about poo so much!  Dr. Giles and her scat sniffing pooch Eba have taught us so much about orca poo and what we can learn from it. This is a critical part of Southern resident killer whale science and is run through the University of Washington and Conservation Canine. It has given us information on the populations re-productivity, nutrition status, what they are eating and where from, stress levels and more! This image shows the first time we ran into Dr. Giles on the water!

"Patience is a virtue and the best things in life are worth waiting for." Alex and Maria spent uncountable hours sitting on these rocks at Lime Kiln State Park Lighthouse waiting for the Southern resident killer whales to come by... we laughed, cried, drank tea, educated passers by... and oh boy was it worth the wait when the the orcas came by!
