Orca Awareness Month 2018

This June we celebrate the 12th annual Orca Awareness Month! Whilst our adoptee is a Northen Resident Orca, and the population is beginning to flourish, Orca Month aims to raise awareness of the plight of the endangered Southern Resident orca population. The Southern Resident population now numbers only 39 Orcas, due in part to the diminishing Salmon population on which this critically endangered orca population depends.

On 24th April, we officially opened the Ash Falls extension and we are so happy that you’ve been enjoying the new space!

Ash Falls has been home of dirty.pretty for a very long time; it’s been through various metamorphoses and taken lots of forms. In June ’17, Ash Falls was opened to the public and swiftly added to the photogenic location category in the Second Life Destination Guide. But whilst beautiful, we felt that Ash Falls hadn’t quite found its’ purpose in its’ newest form.

We’ve adopted an Orca!

Many of you that have stopped by to visit Erebos Harbor will have noticed our little Orca pod who live in the waters off the North West coast line! Just as our environments at Ash Falls and Erebos Harbor are inspired by the rugged topography, rocky ashen beaches and lush greenery of the stunning Pacific Northwest; our killer whales are inspired by the Northern Resident Orca community that live off of the coast of British Columbia.
