Ken Balcomb, senior scientist at the Center for Whale Research, looks down Friday as he listens to others talk about the declining population of endangered orcas that frequent Washington waters during a news conference in Seattle. The CWR said that three whales are believed dead or missing since summer and that only 80 animals were accounted for during its July 1 census. Two females and a 10-month-old calf are missing. Balcomb says the orcas, particularly mothers and babies, are struggling because they don't have enough food, a primary factor in their decline.
