Transient Killer Whales Dominate in 2017

August was a great month for transient killer whales sightings.  This year we have seen the Transient, marine mammal eating, killer whales (Bigg’s killer whales) much more than our resident, fish eating, pods.  2017 has been the most drastic shift in how often we see each of the two ecotypes!  It used to be that we rarely ever saw transients, but now they seem to be showing up everywhere!  Here are a few killer whale photographs for you to enjoy from some of our trips in August!  Naturalist Bart Rulon
