July 1st - Orcas near Patos Island
Today we caught up with the T65A’s and the T101’s.
These guys were hanging out near Patos Island in the morning and by the mid-afternoon had moved just East of Saturna Island. They did a lot of traveling today to find their food, but it looks like the found it! Near the end of the afternoon they did some hunting and expressed their happiness by doing some tail and pec slaps!
Killer whales will travel 150+ Km per day looking for food, especially when there’s a lot of them hanging out together. Each adult Orca needs to eat 250-350 lbs of food per day!
Check out the great photos our naturalists got today!
Each whale has a unique dorsal fin and saddle patch, the white-grey spot behind their dorsal fin. This allows us to tell each whale apart and track the pods better!
Below you can clearly see Beardslee (T102), the large male with a slight curve to the top of his dorsal fin.
