Both new calves have been named! Say hello to L124 “Whistle” and J56 “Tofino”! - L124 “Whistle” was named for the whistling vocalizations the Southern Residents use. Whether there is a special purpose for the whistling sounds is not known. However, whistles are used during social interactions and in short-range communication. - Whistle was born in December 2018 and was first seen during a livestream of TV stations in Seattle. They aired live aerial footage of several groups of killer whales in Puget Sound and viewers were able to see a very small calf among them. During this livestream it became clear that the calf’s mother was L77 “Matia” (b. 1987 )! - J56 “Tofino” was named after the place she was first seen. On May 30, 2019, whale watchers encountered J Pod near Tofino and noticed a very tiny new calf with them! The calf still had fetal folds on its side and the Center for Whale Research estimated that she was born just a few days earlier on May 24th. - On July 5th, the Center for Whale Research had their first encounter with the new calf and were able to confirm that the mother was J31 “Tsuchi” (b. 1995 )! They were also able to get a clear view of her genital markings and announced that Tofino is a female! - J56 has also been given a First Nations name, N̓ačiqs (Na-chi-cks ) which means Tofino. - Now that both calves have received names they are available for adoption via the Whale Museum! - Photo of L124 “Whistle” by @brendonbissonnette Photo of J56 “Tofino” by Dave Ellifrit

Tilikum, Seaworld Orlando: 🇺🇸Captured on November 9, 1983 at around two years of age ( no catch today and Seaworld has nothing to do with his capture ). He was transferred to Sealand Victoria where he lived with Haida 2 and Nootka 4. In 1991 Haida gave birth to Kyuquot the first son of Tilikum. He was involved in the death of a keeper who fell into the water and was drowned. None of these orcas had been trained to be in contact with human in the water. After this incident, the four orcas were transfert at Seaworld and Sealand closed. Tilikum did not move from Orlando. Despite his huge size, he was a submissive orca. In 1993, Gudrun gave birth to his daughter Nyar who was mentally and physically ill. As her mother tried to drown her as is naturally the case when a baby is not viable. His daughter was placed with Tilikum and he was very ghod father. Nyar died in 1996. Then Tilikum spent more time with Taima who is more dominant. In 2007, Malia was born of their union. They had 4 babies together until Taima died in childbirth in 2010. In 2008, Tilikum was introduced to Takara and his son Trua (his grandson ). Trua became very close to his grandfather. In mid-2016, they spent less time together and Tili was represented in Malia until her mother’s death. Two incidents involved Tilikum: In 1999, a mentally disabled man threw himself into his tank at the closure of the park. He died of hypothermia and drowning. He had bites but could not tell if they were postmortem or ante mortem. In 2010, it was the death of Dawn Brancheau who was lying on the platform to play with Tili. Her ponytail floated on the water. Tili grabbed it and drowned her. Tilikum was the largest male to live in captivity ( 12,000 pounds, 23 feet ) and the best breeder (natural births are mentioned ). In 2016, he was fighting a bacterial lung infection. On January 6, 2017, he died at the age of 35. #tilikum #marineland #zookeeper #blackfishlies #keepthetanksfull #orca #killerwhale #dolphin #seaworld #captivity #delphinarium #seaworldcares #captivity #bottlenosedolphin #tursiopstruncatus #loroparque #blackfish is bullshit ⚠️Don’t #emptythetanks ⚠️ #peta lies

This past school year, I was able to take an amazing class trip to the Pacific Northwest. It was my first time on a plane, first time seeing snow, first time out of the country... my world literally got a lot bigger. We got to do so many experiences that I'll never forget, but I think the highlight of the trip for everyone came on the last day when we got to see wild orcas in the San Juan Islands. These 3 are from the T-124 pod, and from left to right are the adult son, matriarch mother, and the mother's young daughter. This was my first and only (so far! ) experience with anything pertaining to ice, but it's as close as I'll be able to being able to talk about the Arctic with one of my pictures. ..... While Florida seems like it is rapidly changing from climate change, the state most affected at this point without a doubt is Alaska. This summer, Alaska's waters were completely ice-free, with the closest ice being 150 miles from their northern coast. The same thing happened in 2017, but that was the first time in human history, and it happened sooner and more drastically this summer. As the ice melts, the darker water absorbs more sunlight and heats up, which melts more ice. Also, about 95% of the old, multi-year sea ice has already melted, and only the thin annual ice remains. As more old ice deposits melt, they also release stored methane, which is 30 times worse than CO2 for trapping heat. Both of these are contributing to a runaway effect, continuing to rapidly warm and melt the Arctic ice. ..... But there's good news too. Since we banned the use of dangerous aerosol chemicals in the 1980's, the hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica has nearly completed repaired itself. This proves it's not too late. The ecosystems can repair themselves, we just have to work together to give them a fighting chance, lest we pay with our survival as a species. #orcas #killerwhale #cetacean #climatechange #climate #climatestrike #marinemammal #sanjuanislands #whalewatching #ice #arctic #alaska #wild #pathofthepanther #floridawildlifecorridor #wildflorida #science #florida #keys #realflorida #ocean #swamp #everglades #bigcypress #conservation #sustainable #nikon #photography

Had a huge surprise from this proud killer whale approaching our boat and showing off his meal to us yesterday. Our engines were off and he swam under and around our small zodiac for around 5 minutes before continuing on their way. #killerwhale #transientkillerwhale #orca #hunter #biggskillerwhales #marinelife #bc #salishsea #blackfish #whale #whalewatching #surprise #nature #wildlife #wildlifeofbc #canada

“Oh, How I’ve Missed You...” . . . We ran into some of the Southern Resident killer whales in Canadian waters, specifically a handful of members of L pod. Because of a Canadian moratorium on watching these critically endangered whales, we were unable to stay with them. I managed to snap this picture of L91 (Muncher ), a female born in 1995 like me, as we passed by them. This was my first time seeing these whales all summer long. Once iconic Salish Sea regulars, their presence here is now far and few between as they struggle to find adequate prey to sustain themselves. These specialized fish hunters evolved to prefer chinook salmon, the largest and most calorie-rich salmon. Unfortunately, due to overfishing, pollution, hydroelectric dams, and habitat destruction, all five species of Pacific salmon are in severe decline, especially chinook salmon, resulting in a corresponding decline in this population of orcas I’ve known my whole life. Year by year I watch them die off one by one, starving to death and never returning with their families. My heart aches for her and her whole family as we continue to neglect our world’s ecosystems. I hope wherever they’ve been all summer they’ve been finding fat, healthy salmon to eat. Stay strong, kiddos. I love you all, and will keep fighting for you for as long as I have to. . . . #orca #killerwhale #southernresidentorcas #southernresidentkillerwhales #marinemammal #marinebio #cetacean #lpod #l91 #salishsea #nofishnoblackfish #sos #saveoursalmon #salmon #conservation #endangered #pnw #pacificnorthwest #washington

The days are getting shorter and each morning is crisper than the last. But these guys just keep coming. A very busy September for the Northern Residents. Hopefully this means there is plenty of salmon for them to eat. Long may it continue’ #family #orca #killerwhale #orcalab #northernresidentorcas #broughtonarchipelago #landbasedwhalewatching #september #canon #blackandwhite #nature #wildlife

T019B "Galiano" moving his massive body at high speed! He was porpoising to catch up to mom who was on a seal hunt. He helped her finish the job and they shared the catch with one another and all the gulls coming in to pick up scraps. #biggsarethebalance #killerwhale #orca #whale #whalewatching #nikon #nikontop #nofishnoblackfish #noplacefortankers #nomorefishfarms #explorebc #hellobc #pacificnorthwest #pnw #beautifulbritishcolumbia #idigthebiggs #sharecangeo #wildlife #wildlifephotography

The ultimate hunter and my favourite marine animal. Intelligence, adaptability, strength; the Orca or more commonly known as the Killer whale, has it all. Although commonly confused for a whale, the orca is in fact the largest of the dolphin species. These predators range from the coasts of Norway all the way South to the Antarctic. Orcas have evolved with layers of thick blubber to survive the cold. Orcas are social mammals which allows them to use a variety of hunting strategies. Although their techniques vary from region to region, Orca pods have been successful hunters. Orcas are not only equipped with interlocking teeth meant for ripping prey apart, but can also reach speeds of up to 30 mph. This enables them to accommodate prey from seals to sharks and even other whales. These remarkable animals have evolved and thrived in open waters over the centuries. Captivity has however proved extremely dangerous for these large animals and a stand needs to be taken to stop this. Orcas need to be protected in the WILD, before humans become reason for their demise. • • 📸: Google✌🏼 • • #orca #killerwhale #mammals #animals #instaanimals #animalkingdom #planetearth #photography #nature #earth #love #likeforlikes #follow #natgeo #smiles #happy #nationalgeographic #love #instalike #wildlife #wild #wildlifephotography #animallovers #animalphotography #animalplanet
