The summer and fall of 2002 was one of the busiest, richest and most interesting orca seasons ever experienced by OrcaLab and relayed to the world via OrcaLive. The best known highlight of the summer was the return of the orphaned baby orca Springer (A73) to her family and community, but beyond this very public spectacle the day to day drama of the lives of the orcas was endlessly fascinating. Every family in the northern resident community visited the Johnstone Strait “core area”, providing more than a thousand hours of audio recordings and hundreds of hours of wonderful video shot by Anna Kathleen Spong from “CP”, OrcaLab’s Cracroft Point video station.
This production features highlights of OrcaLab’s 2002 video and audio recordings. We hope to bring back fond memories for people in countries around the world who are the enthusiastic audience of LIVE.
