Orcas Vessel Slowdown

Orcas Vessel Slowdown

FILE - This September 2015 file photo provided by NOAA Fisheries shows an adult female orca, identified as J-16, as she's about to surface with her youngest calf, born earlier in the year, near the San Juan Islands in Washington state's Puget Sound. Ships passing the narrow busy channel off Washington's San Juan Islands are slowing down this summer as part of an experiment to protect the small endangered population of southern resident killer whales. Vessel noise can interfere with the killer whales' ability to hunt, navigate and communicate with each other, so US researchers are looking into what impact the project will have on the orcas.
