Ruth Campbell and Noaa Edwards were arrested at a rally on August 1 while protesting the impact that the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion might have on the survival of the southern resident killer whales off B.C.’s southwest coast. The “Tankers Kill Whales” rally was organized by the group Protect the Inlet in response to the story of a female orca, J35, that has been carrying her dead calf through the Salish Sea for more than a week. These images have brough attention to the potential threat the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion brings to the orca population.
