Huge thanks to those good folks observing and reporting incidents of orca harassment, illegal shell fish theft/harvesting and over-fishing. The photos on Facebook of the vehicle, boat and offenders from the marina owner in Egmont were a great help as were the photos and description of the boat and people harassing the orcas. The 24-hour hotline is 1-877-7277 or cell #7277. Protect our paradise.
