Meet Salt

This month, our featured adoption whale is Salt. She is at least 45 years old. Salt has had a total of 14 calves and is a great grandmother! Salt spends her summers off the coast of New England, USA. where she faces many dangers, including entanglement in fishing gear and collisions with ships.

Meet Rainbow

This month, our featured adoption dolphin is Rainbow. She is a very sociable dolphin, usually found with a group of friends around the Inner Moray Firth, looking for food. A brilliant hunter, Rainbow knows every trick in the book when it comes to working as a team to round up herring or mackerel. She has a distinctive dorsal fin that makes her easy to spot.

Meet Holly

This month, our featured adoption orca is Holly. She was born in 1980 to Licka. Her babies Surf, Current, Cameleon and Albion are all named after places around British Columbia, Canada. In the spring of 2017, Holly had her sixth baby who had very mottled skin, appearing almost entirely grey, which is actually fairly common in young orcas. Holly and her family are one of the few groups seen in Johnstone Strait during the winter. They often travel as far as southeast Alaska, a range of more than 300 miles!
