Killer Whale Johnstone Strait British Columbia Canada

A lone male killer whale plies the waters of Johnstone Strait on a summer afternoon backdropped by the British Columbia coast mountains of Canada.



Surrounded by mountains, forest and water - Northern Vancouver Island in British Columbia is a haven for nature lovers. The mountains and forests are home to a various of land dwelling mammals such as bears, cougars, marmots, and deer as well brightly coloured birds. The waterways off the northern end of the island are home to an array of marine mammals such as killer whales, humpback whales, sea lions, and dolphins - just to name a few.

A small portion of Johnstone Strait has been set aside under the name of the Robson Bight Ecological Reserve which serves as a refuge for the northern resident killer whales and a place they go to rub their bellies. The whole area is a paradise and it's all backdropped by the coastal mountains of British Columbia.
