From the Orca Network: "Nice informative piece by the News Tribune on the recent incidents of orca and watercraft interactions in south Puget Sound. Our goal is to help people connect with and watch whales responsibly, and to learn about their culture and needs. We believe this fosters a greater awareness and motivation to protect the orcas and their habitat. When we withhold real time sightings, people on the water still find and/or just happen upon the orcas. A key piece here is to keep educating those on the water of the regulations and why it matters. We would like to continue offering a place for people to share sightings, promote land based viewing and assist people to see and have more eyes on the whales. It is in everyone’s best interest to be a part of a solution that works and keeps the whales safe and healthy while people continue to enjoy their time on the water."
