The Center for Whale Research in Washington state says it watched the orca, known as Tahlequah or J35, chase a school of salmon in Haro Strait west of San Juan Island on Saturday afternoon.

Sadly, the first southern resident killer whale calf born near the PNW in nearly three years died soon after birth. This endangered population is struggling against lack of food, pollution, and environmental disturbances. https://buff.ly/2LCmIOB #NoBlueNoGreen source
