June 20th - T65A's and T36A's in the San Juan Islands.
June 20th was quite the exciting day when we got to see the T65A’s and the T36A’s down south!
The morning trip took us south through the gulf islands and across the border into the American San Juan Islands. The group was then seen again in the afternoon after having travelled farther north off of Saturna Island. This group consisted of two pods, the T36A’s and the T65A’s, with ten animals total.
These two pod were travelling, hunting, and celebrating together! It was quite the sight to see.
Both these pods are relatively young, with eight of the ten being under 15 years old. This is always exciting to see because it means that the population is healthy and growing and that the matriarchs of these pods are healthy and taking good care of their young.
Through all the excitement of the trip the naturalists managed to get some amazing pictures of these pods check the rest of them out below!
