12/21 Joe Gaydos, J-Pod calf, park rangers, coal facts

Oak and Holly Kings
Celebrate the Winter Solstice. In a few hours, we’ll begin to have more daylight minutes. Hang in there.

Congratulations! SeaDoc Society director Joe Gaydos elected chair of Puget Sound Partnership Science Panel  

Orca Network says J-Pod has a new calf, brining to 27 the number of J-Pod members and 89 the members of the Southern resident pods. Southern Resident Orcas Have a New Calf! (12/20/11)

Sad that 83 of the state’s 189 full-time rangers stand to lose their current jobs. To stay on, most would have to take a major pay cut and work as little as five months of the year in one of 63 new seasonal jobs being created.83 park rangers will get pink slips next week
