This presentation of the highlights of the fourth season of Orca-Live reflects the richness of the underwater world of the kelp forest as well as the continuing story of the orcas who visit Johnstone Strait each year. We were privileged to witness many remarkable scenes. The intense focus of Kiltik and Racey fishing right under the camera stands out, as does the effortless underwater ballet of the curious quartet of sea lions who made the kelp forest at Cracroft Point their home in the fall. Springer’s return, again, was a welcome sight; the visit of “Willy”, the solitary pseudorca, an unexpected thrill. Everyday events provided continuous fascination… shafts of sunlight illuminating individual strands of kelp, endless streams of perch, vigilant kelp greenlings gliding by. At once awesome and ordinary, the imagery and sounds presented here will enable everyone to relive Johnstone Strait’s summer and fall 2003.
