The body of a young killer whale was discovered near Vancouver Island on Thursday, the fourth death this year in the endangered southern resident population.
Marian Locksley's insight:

“A young reproductive female, even if she wasn’t pregnant as they think she might have been, is a huge loss for this population,” Rose said. “No births in two years and four deaths in one year? Do the math—this population is heading nowhere but down, and it has to stop or we’re going to lose them.”

It is a whale safe season in the Southern Ocean so conservationists have shifted their focus to the endangered Patagonian toothfish.
Marian Locksley's insight:

Far from being 'killing machines', they have personalities, best friends and an exceptional capacity for learning
Marian Locksley's insight:

Why does any of this matter? Well, we're killing about 100 million sharks every year, 11,000 an hour, either for the Chinese soup trade (where the de-finned shark is chucked back into the sea to sink and die on the bottom) or as bycatch.
