KNKX Presents Orca Rescue! A Special Event About Springer the Orphaned Orca May 22, 2022
May 22 at 2 p.m.
The Forum at Town Hall, Seattle
Twenty years ago a young orca named Springer was discovered near Seattle – lost, alone and 300 miles away from home. Six months later she was rescued, rehabilitated, and returned to her pod on the north end of Vancouver Island. Today she is thriving, with two calves of her own. It’s the only successful orca reunion in history!
This special event will feature a presentation and discussion with members of Springer’s team, hosted by KNKX Environment Reporter Bellamy Pailthorp. Hear the story firsthand from the people who lived it, and learn how you can help orcas today. The event is free and family friendly, and will include an audience Q&A. All ages welcome! Can’t attend in person? The event will be live streamed.
