Due to a technical difficulty the recording did not start at the beginning of the webinar, and we apologize for missing the first few minutes of introduction. The recording begins as Monika Wieland Shields is giving an introduction about Orca Behavior Institute and the work they do.

Updated Map of the Salish Sea & Surrounding Basin

We're happy to share the newly-updated version of Stefan Freelan's Map of the Salish Sea & Surrounding Basin. Not surprisingly, it looks very similar to the 2009 version but with crisper lines and tighter resolution that allows for enlargements.
