the worst way for friendships to end is for literally nothing to go wrong, you just stop talking. they stop messaging you to see how youre doing and you get sick of being the first one to initiate conversation so you just let the friendship go and wonder how that person is doing and never hear from them again

Hope for one of Canada’s most endangered species
On a misty morning off the British Columbia coast, several sleek black fins slowly break through glass-calm water in perfect unison. The sound of blowing air echoes across the water as the animals gracefully surface to take a breath.
Killer whales, also known as orcas, are an iconic symbol of the Pacific Northwest. Coastal First Nations recognize them as powerful animals that should be respected and left unharmed. Killer whales represent the strength of love and the strong family bonds needed for survival. These “wolves of the sea” are at the top of the ocean food web, similar to wolves’ status on land.
This week the federal government released a long-overdue draft Action Plan for resident killer whales, a significant step to protecting one of Canada’s most endangered species. Strategies focus on maintaining food supplies, limiting pollution effects, reducing disturbance from human activities and protecting more critical habitat.
