J38, one of the 74 remaining southern resident killer whales porpoising in the open ocean. These whales have had a tough few decades, initially being targeting for capture and distribution to seaworld amusement parks in the late 60's, these whales now face a shortage of their primary food source - chinook salmon, unprecedented levels of underwater disturbance and a high rate of infant mortality. The future looks bleak for these last remaining whales
