Procession of the Species

An Earth Day gift for you — Liza Michael­son shares this video from Sat­ur­day’s 9th annu­al Lopez Island Pro­ces­sion of the Species. This year the focus was on native species.

The orga­niz­ers bor­rowed dor­sal fins rep­re­sent­ing every JK and L pod mem­ber from San Juan Islanders for Safe Ship­ping, and Lopez islanders turned out in droves to car­ry the 78 orca fins in the parade.

Hum­ming­birds, sea slugs, deer, owls, ravens, fox­es, ducks, and even pileat­ed wood­peck­ers walked in the pro­ces­sion led by 8 cos­tumed drummers.

Thank you Liza for sharing!
