Puget Sound Killer Whales

RANGE: Puget Sound, Juan de Fuca Strait, Haro Strait, and Georgia Strait

THREATS: Toxic chemicals, declines in salmon, general ecosystem deterioration, growing whale-watching pressure, collisions with ships, oil spills, Navy sonar, and entanglement in fishing nets

POPULATION TREND: Southern resident killer whales have experienced alarming population instability during the past 30 years, indicating that the population is unsteady and oscillating toward extinction. Since 1996, the population has experienced a steep drop, going from 97 to 78 whales.

Portland Hipsters

RANGE: Hawthorne, Alberta, Division/Clinton, Burnside (up to around 27th), Mississippi, Belmont, Sellwood, parts of the Pearl ( though it might be easier to map the parts of Portland that aren’t hipster.) Hipster bars include Sweet Hereafter,  Bunk Bar, Tiga, Buelahland and Aalto

THREATS: Collisions with automobiles at intersections due to lack of brakes on their fixed gears and the sideways looks of other hipsters

POPULATION TREND: Stable

    This is exactly the kindof post that encouraged me to shut my FB account, I’m totally on the side of the whales, but maybe if the Anarchist Scenesters in the USA could stop worrying about hipsters, toughen up and actually fight, instead of just going to parties and dressing cute, stop paying their taxes, loans, bills, shut their bank accounts and credit cards, etc, maybe we could save some of the whales before we’re all eradicated by the commodity spectacle!
