On Thursday, the Seattle Seahawks joined The Whale Museum in remembering Granny (J-2), the estimated 105-year-old killer whale and fixture among the southern resident orcas of the Pacific Northwest’s Salish Sea who has been missing and now presumed dead by the Center of Whale Research.
<span style="line-height: 1.5em;">The Whale Museum plans to contribute a permanent exhibit in Granny’s honor, so individuals can learn about the lives she touched over the years. Fans are encouraged to make a donation to the non-profit organization by visiting http://whalemuseum.org/products/make-a-donation, where funds will go toward supporting the group’s education and research programs.</span>
<span style="line-height: 1.5em;">The town of Friday Harbor, Washington will team with The Whale Museum to host a community potluck in Granny’s honor from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, February 12, when stories of Granny will be shared. The get together is free to attend.</span>
