One afternoon i spent a few hours walking up and down the beach enjoying the sun and blue skies. i was so preoccupied with taking photos of herons in the water that i had totally missed this giant, dark, storm cloud rolling in over the hill behind me! it wasn't until i turned around to head back that i saw it but at the same time a movement from in the trees caught my eye. this beautiful bald eagle emerged as it came soaring out from between the green branches and streaked across the stormy sky behind.

It is with great joy and honor that the movement of the american indian solar culture (m.a.i.s.c.) and sacred arts research foundation (s.a.r.f.) present the 2018 winter solstice heart & mind festival: changing tides - a fundraiser for our underwater relatives and the salish sea 🌊 , featuring taino elder maestro manuel rufino, grandmother clara soaring hawk of the deer clan, theresa bear fox, kurt russo, peia, dream seed 🎢 and ecstatic dance🌟. in 1970, over 40 orcas were brutally captured from the salish sea in northwest washington and taken to marine parks around the world. during that capture, at least five of the orcas were killed. tokitae, who was just three years old at the time of capture, is the sole survivor, living alone in a small and isolated tank at miami seaquarium where she has been performing acts for food rewards for 48 years. tokitae has not seen another orca since 1980. the lummi nation intend to change this by returning her to her home pod at the eastsound, orcas island.

this event will raise funds to support the lummi nation’s plight to return tokitae to the salish sea.

be part of this amazing movement and join us πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ on the 15th of december for more awareness πŸ‘, more connection πŸ€— , more wisdom β™Ύ πŸ™Œ and more opportunities 🀲 to make a real difference in the world 🌎 and care for our beautiful mother earth.
for more information and to book your ticket please see the link in bio. πŸ”

see you there β˜€οΈ #heartandmindfestivals #spiritualecology #pachamama #salishseaorcas #salishsea #dreamseed #yoga #fundraiser #ecology #goldendrum #tokitae #tokitaesreturn #lummi #lummination #shamanicsoundjourney #sacredartsresearchfoundation

✨our✨ orca task force is at least 700,000 strong and if the governor’s orca task force thinks we are going to become silent just because they turned in their unreasonable orca recovery recommendations, they are wrong.
we are just getting started! .

we have never been so close to breaching the l4sr dams in history and we are at the cusp of breaching the dams because of you!
700k signatures, 10k phone calls, 3500 surveys, 18k public comments & thousands of protestors.
politicians work for the people, and if governor inslee wants to keep his job, then it’s high time to breach the dams! .

the governor’s orca task force is failing our southern resident orcas. with zero recommendations to sustainably increase chinook salmon (increasing spill is not the answer) our orcas simply cannot survive. the only responsible recommendation to save the last remaining 74 southern resident orcas from extinction is by breaching the lower four snake river dams as soon as humanly possible. within 14 months of breaching these dams there will be one million more chinook salmon per year! this is the only answer. and we all know it. .

together, we are the only force strong enough to breach the dams and save our orcas. .

As i begin my journey east over the cascades to spend a day of thanks among friends i think of the things i am most grateful for, not the least of which are the whales that continue to inspire and captivate me. i am thankful they've connected me to a world wide community who are as fascinated by them as i am and who cherish their stories as much as i do. i am thankful for them and for you all. #orca #killerwhale #srkw #whale #dolphin #whalewatching #salishsea #nofishnoblackfish #pacificnorthwest #sanjuanislands #thankful

Point atkinson lighthouse in lighthouse park, a national historic site of canada. the point was named by captain george vancouver in 1792, who was aboard the ship ‘discovery’. the current lighthouse dates from 1912. west vancouver can be seen in the background through the fog. #lighthousepark #pointatkinson #lighthouse #fog #evening #ocean #salishsea #georgiastrait #westvancouver #vancouver #bc #britishcolumbia #canada

Orcasound.net has developed a fun way for us all to be citizen scientists and help the salish sea orcas.
you can listen live to their hydrophones in the salish sea and report back what you hear. scientists will use this data locate and study the orcas, particularly at night or in bad weather. orcasound provides tools to help you recognize the different calls of j, k, and l pods and to log your observations. please check out orcasound.net for more information and happy listening.

Found only in the north pacific, dall's porpoises are often mistaken as baby killer whales because of their similar markings and small size. these social and rapid swimmers are attracted to fast moving vessels and boats and can often be seen riding or surfing the wake of the bow (front of the boat). ——

Less than 50 years ago, southern resident killer whales were captured and transported to marine parks around the world for our entertainment. it seems we've come a long way since then... but have we? in many ways, we still exploit killer whales for our fascination and viewing pleasure. and not only that, we've been unable to allocate them the space or resources they need to survive in their own home. it seems, generally speaking, we cannot simply admire nature from a distance. a culture founded on a respect for nature goes a long way... and that's what we need to foster and teach now.

I never felt more alive than this summer. i met amazing people that share the same passion. i stop watching tv show, i try to learn something new every day, i kitesurf, read, write and hike more, i spend all my free time in or on the ocean, eat more local and organic. i feel more passionate and connected with my life. feel lucky to be able to live that crazy life :d <3 
here are some highlights of this incredible summer, i’m looking forward to start next season as a zodiac skipper, will be an amazing new challenge πŸ³πŸš€ #pnw #westcoast #victoria #salishsea #marinelife #whale #orca #liveyourdream #dreamlife #nature #bethebestversionofyou
