Endangered orca mother and calf
Southern Resident killer whales live in tight-knit family groups made up of a mother, her offspring, and her daughters’ offspring. The oldest living female holds vast knowledge about the pod’s travel routes and feeding grounds. She guides her family members, who in turn rely on her for survival. The 73 remaining Southern Residents are under threat from ocean noise, vessel disturbance, and food shortage. The generous support of Canadians like you has powered Ecojustice’s decade-long legal battle to give endangered orcas a fighting chance at survival.
