The rare and playful orcas of the Pacific Northwest urgently need your help. A property-rights group is trying to strip away Endangered Species Act protections for the last remaining killer whales in Puget Sound. We can't let that happen.

I almost couldn't believe yet ANOTHER petition going around in Care.2 about the same topic. Please be aware that this one is as misleading as the others, and these are NOT the last remaining Orcas in Puget Sound! I live here. The original topic was specifically addressing one pod of migrating whales that winter in the waters off California and return to Puget Sound in the summer. There are many resident pods which stay here all year long.

Why take away the protections granted to the killer whales? This makes no sense--they have as much right to life as we do!

This makes half a dozen misguided articles in Care.2 about Puget Sound Orcas. First of all, they are NOT rare. There are several resident pods that live here all year long. I live 1 mile from Puget Sound and they are seen almost daily near where I live, often surfacing and following Washington State Ferries, especially in the San Juan Islands and even farther south around Vashon.

Articles like this make the credible ones in Care.2 lost in the ones like this...............sort of like reading The National Enquirer and finding something truthful. Occasionally there is, but when one reads so much that isn't, one tends to not bother anymore...............fodder for when one is sitting under a hair dryer at the salon or at the doctor's office only.
