The L Pod sub-group known as the L12s was seen with a new calf about a week ago off Tofino, B.C.
Yesterday, June 29, J Pod and the L12s came in to the inland waters late in the day and went north into the Strait of Georgia, B.C.
Today, June 30, while researchers were looking for the new calf, they found that there isn't 1 BUT 2 new calves!

It's great news and adds more hope for this population. It's early and they have a lot of growing to do. We humans need to do our part for the whales and the waters in which they live.
The whales, the eco-system need the humans' help to get healthy and stay healthy. It takes everyone to do their part. If you have ever seen them, and I know some of you just saw them for your first time today and you realized that these are much more than just a bunch of whales in the water. They are the 'people of the sea'. Keep that thought because we all can learn a lot from these Southern Resident Endangered Orcas. Happy whale memories and happy whale watching of these magnificent beings!
