ORCA Council - Help our Beloved Orcas!

The Community's beloved Orcas are coming close to retirement and we are forming an Orca Council now to help manage their care.
more info...

The Orcas are starting year 4 what was projected to be a 5-year art project. However, some of the orcas are already showing signs of aging. We hope to create a council that will help decide which orcas are ready for an early retirement, which ones are strong enough to continue swimming, and even perhaps assist in the creation of a new pod that can rotate into the current family. There is a lot of room for ideas and creative thinking on the continued maintenance and care of these beautiful art pieces. If you love the orcas and want to be part of the Orca Council which needs to be active before the orcas return in the spring.
