The Orca, J35, that carried her dead Orca calf in 2018 that made headlines around the world has given birth to J57, a spry calf that for the Southern Resident Orca Population.
This is the first successful birth since May 2019, which is averaging 1 successful birth per season compared to a healthy population that would birth 6-8 calves per season.
The Southern Resident Orca Population has been plagued by human pressures of capture for captivity, hunting, and lack of salmon. Every birth counts for this endangered population.
