Killer Whale Death Linked to Canadian Navy War Games? | Pacific Voyagers

Just 87 of the rare southern resident killer whales remain in the U.S. No one is allowed to approach one of them within 200 yards or 183 metres, and they must stay out of the path of whales by 400 yards, or 366 metres. In Canada, the whales are listed as a species at risk, making it illegal to kill or harass the animal. Canada has regulations keeping boats a certain distance from the whales, but is only now considering laws that would enforce a 100-metre exclusion zone around the whales.
