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
