Southern Resident Killer Whale Superpod!

More good news from the Center for Whale Research…

This video was taken during our encounter with the endangered Southern Resident killer whales on September 5, 2020. All three pods (J, K, and L) came together in the same area. This gathering is known as a Superpod. Ken Balcomb, Center for Whale Research, Founder/Senior Scientist, said it looked like a party, with lots of breaching and communication among the whales. “It was like a big picnic,” Balcomb said.
