This website, San Juan Orcas, was established to help spread awareness of the endangered Southern Resident orcas and to arm people with the knowledge of how to help save these amazing marine mammals from extinction. San Juan Orcas was also established to offer help on identifying individual orcas.
Do you have any photos of orcas taken in British Columbia or Washington State and want help identifying them? Send me your photos by email and I will identify each orca for you, free of charge.
Check out the orca encounters blog to read my almost daily adventures with orcas and see the pictures I take!
Threats to the Southern Resident orcas include low Chinook/King salmon availability, toxins (PCBs, DDTs, PBDEs), and vessel noise. Here's how you can help.
