Southern California Steelhead: A Forgotten Treasure
Once abundant enough to support a recreational fishery, southern California steelhead are now listed as endangered due to habitat loss with many southern California residents forgetting they share the landscape with this coastal treasure.
Killer Whales at Night: Helping Protect Southern Residents
Little is known about what killer whales do at night. To learn more, scientists use suction cup tags called DTAGs that can monitor whales’ nighttime behavior and responses to noise. Learn how this new information could help better protect the whales.

Spotlight on the Southern Resident Killer Whale--An Interview with NOAA Fisheries Biologist Lynne Barre
The Pacific Northwest is home to critically endangered orcas, the Southern Resident Killer Whales, consisting of the J, K, and L pods or clans. NOAA research advances in an intense effort to understand, provide new data, and minimize threats to them.
B-Roll: Photogrammetry Research on Southern Resident Killer Whales
Select footage of photogrammetry research on southern resident killer whales using an unmanned hexacopter. Images will be used to measure body condition and health of these endangered whales, and the data will be used to help guide recovery efforts.
