J-Pod’s back!

June 19, 2009

We were all heartened to hear of reports of J Pod with L’s & the 2 K’s back in our waters, although too far north and out of range for our tour. We saw a dozen or more harbor porpoise in San Juan Channel, looked like they were actively foraging. I am also starting to see more marine birds out in the Strait of Juan de Fuca and around the islands, this last week. However the sight that really pleased me was the rescue tug attached by line behind, to an oil tanker all the way up Haro Strait and Boundary Pass! A long 12 years to get that escort tug, many thanks to Fred Felleman and all who worked to have a year round rescue tug! It is also my understanding that the oil companies have to fund the tug.
