ENCOUNTERS

An Encounter refers to any time we observe killer whales (orcas), from one of our research boats or land, where at least one individual is identified and photographed. Typically, 2-4 staff are involved in an encounter. Once we come into contact with whales (ie. within distance of identifying individuals by sight) we have begun our encounter. During an encounter, our main goal is to photograph every individual present from both the left and right side.

The Southern Resident orcas need your help like never before. For these magnificent whales to survive, and for their community to grow, they need us to be their voice.
