Update on 9-13 Killer Whale sighting.

After processing the images from our exciting orca sighting last Tuesday, Alisa Schulman-Janiger, local cetacean and killer whale researcher, has provided some background information for us.  Alisa believe 3 matrilines were represented in our pod of 10 whales.  This includes CA51, CA138, and CA122C.   She continues:  The two larger males are from CA51 as were 2 others.  Four were from CA138, and a female plus juvenile represented CA122C.  All 3 matrilines had been seen about a month earlier in the Monterey area, but not together.

And now we have 8 more killer whales sighted today…wow!

Thanks for all you do, Alisa!
