June 7th Update: Orca Action Month

Orca Awareness Month was started 11 years ago by the WA based Orca Network. Beginning this year it will be Orca Action Month!
First it was the “Awareness” of the plight of orcas and now taking “Action” is gravely needed. For over 25 years government, industries and others failed to heed the warnings by organizations such as Lifeforce.
In 2018 the world saw that orcas were sentient beings with families like humans. People worldwide witnessed the mourning of 20 year old J35, Tehlequah, who carry her dead baby over 1000 miles for 17 days. In 1995, it was not widely publicized but also seen in captivity at the Vancouver Aquarium. After her first 2 babies had been taken from her, the orca Bjossa stopped staff from taking her third dead baby from her.
Later in 2018 the ailing J50 was dying and died after being chased and subjected to experiments. Now many more people are now realizing and feeling their suffering!
Since the 80s Lifeforce fought for Animal Rights (AR) and helped defined the AR movement. Now the rights of these indigenous native orcas must be protected against industries’ pollution, overfishing, experiments and boat traffic (including research vessels).
Now protecting the Indigenous Rights of Orcas is tantamount to their peace and survival. It is their Home!
Equal Laws and Equal Rights are needed to save them! Learn how at Lifeforce Ocean Friends Facebook OCEAN FRIENDS FACEBOOK.
