"Greg Scruggs journalists based in Seattle, who's on the line. Now tennis more about this story about what's happen to this wail. Certainly well there, there's two southern resident, orca or killer whales that ply the waters of the Salish sea, the waterway between Seattle and Vancouver who are in dire straits. One of them a mother birth decaf in late July. The calf died shortly after childbirth, and she has been carrying it around on her sin ever since which has caused her to struggle to keep up with her pod. So marine biologists or worried about her health me. Meanwhile, another female orca is was discovered a Macy, aided and currently marine biologists and local digits digits leaders are coming up with a plan to feed the orca on the fly from the open water with wild fish, and these are endangered species only seventy. Five of them are left in the Pacific Ocean are you can see why both of those stories would attract a lot of attention concern from people in the, but it's also prompted the state governor in Washington to set up a task force. That's correct the the orca is something of a symbol of the state in the region and as an endangered species. I don't think anybody wants to to a want its extinction to occur on their watch. So governor Jay Inslee possible twenty twenty presidential candidate has convened an orca recovery taskforce that's meeting at this very moment actually to come up with some possible solutions to increase the runs of wild salmon that are the staple of the orca. Diet. No you. You mentioned a possible. Twenty twenty presidential candidate is, is there a sense they're trying to Mark out some Huckabee coalition, some some sort of difference between him and other potential candidates by concentrating so much on this, you lie this? Absolutely. He, he's clearly positioning himself to run as the environmental candidate or if not for the presidency than EPA or some kind of cabinet position with an environmental focus. His signature issue in Washington state has been climate change, and I think that the orca issue fits neatly in that environmental portfolio. You mentioned this task force to report later. This year has been talk about things like trying to Ulta boat traffic. Where boats are sharing the waters with the orcas, but then marine biologists saying that, actually, you need long term solutions in that politicians usually aren't keen on long term solutions because they're complex and the didn't get them votes. That's correct. And they're expensive. The wild salmon spawn in the rivers of the Pacific northwest, and then go out to see where they live in our ultimately eaten by orcas among other animals. And those spawning grounds have been blocked repeatedly over the century by the construction of major hydroelectric dams along the Columbia River basin, as well as simple roadways Kasich, crossing small streams and Brooks where salmon might spawn. So the state of Washington is now on the hook after a recent US supreme court decision to replace every covert the tunnel that would go under roadway, where crosses a stream to allow fish passage, and that's an estimated cau-. Cost of three point, seven billion dollars. Meanwhile activists have been calling for decades to tear down several of the least performing dams on the snake river, which feeds into the Columbia and which have the most potential to provide salmon habitat. And there is some hope that the orca international phenomenon might help their cause. Now you mentioned before the in the mind of the the governor. This is a way of positioning himself, oh, for his own political ambitions at the moment, the stories attracting attention and media coverage, and that applies political pressure. But when that meteor attention fades as it inevitably will the those a chance the impetus to act could fade with it. That's absolutely true..
