We recently invited SL Blogger and Explorer, Strawberry Singh, to stop by Cloudbreak to take a moment to enjoy our pink-kissed beaches and dense jungle! We’re pleased to share that Berry found a little early morning space in her schedule to put together a blog post about Cloudbreak, and then spent some time exploring the region on a live stream on her YouTube channel!

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. If you’d like to learn more about Orca Awareness Month, visit their website!
If you’ve been following us for a little while, you’ll know that this year [dirty.pretty] adopted an Orca named Holly using your group join fees. April is a quiet month for the team at Orclab and in their update they decided to share a little bit of history about each of the adoption Orcas that the team observe in Johnstone Strait.
We are proud to share with you that our work to extend Ash Falls from a single homestead to a double homestead is now complete and we would love to invite you to visit, or re-visit, this much loved location on the grid.
Ash Falls is a collection of coastal islands, inspired by the rocky terrain, volcanic sands and rich green flora and fauna of the Pacific North West.
We’ve had our update from OrcaLab, and they had a pretty surprising visitor to Johnstone Strait during February! For the first time in 30 years the team were visited by a Sperm Whale. The researchers at OrcaLab have named him Yukusam, and they took a trip out on their boats to take a closer look. The last recorded sighting of a Sperm Whale in the Strait was in 1984 so the team are really happy to be able to observe Yukusam and will be sending us updates on him too.
In early January, Orcalab report having finally heard A5 pod’s calls on their underwater recordings. And, on 10th January again, their calls were heard from Johnstone Straight and Orcalab’s researchers contacted the Canadian Fisheries department. They were finally able to locate Holly and her family, along with other A5 pod orcas, at the Ecological Reserve at Robson Bight.
