Sonar Armor is damaged, but back home
The Richmond Beach Community Association (RBCA) is happy to announce the return of our two missing Orcas, “Who’s for Dinner?” and “Sonar Armor”.

Both Orcas went missing in September of last year from Kayu Kayu Ac park. A special thanks goes out to a community member who saw them and said something.

“We are happy to have them home.” said Teresa Pape, Executive Director of the Richmond Beach Community Association (RBCA). 
“These beloved art pieces mean so much to the community.”

Who's for Dinner?
In September 2016, the RBCA Board launched a Richmond Beach Public Art project called Beach Orcas on Parade.

Twenty-two artist-embellished Beach Orcas are displayed during the summer in prominent outdoor locations throughout the community. It was from one of these locations that the orcas were stolen.

“We would also like to thank the Shoreline Police Department for their quick handling of the recovery of the art.” expressed Tom Petersen, RBCA’s Vice- President. 
“This is the best possible outcome we could have hoped for.”

Although both orcas were returned, Sonar Armor needs repair. The recovered orcas will be back on public display soon. The Richmond Beach Community Association is asking for those wanting to contribute to the care and rehabilitation of all of the orcas to make a donation via their website, noting it is "for the orcas".

Why not keep them inside landmark buildings such as the library, QFC, Hills, etc?
