The Center for Whale Research reports that On January 11th L pod was sighed with a new calf that appeared to be about 3 weeks old and was bouncing around between L25, L41, L77 L85, and L119.

The mother is L77, a 31-year old mother of two known calves. Her first known calf was born in 2010 and died the same year, and her second known calf is L119, a female born in 2012. The new calf with her will be designated L124, sex unknown at this time.

Approximately 40% of newborn calves do not survive their first few years, but we hope that this one makes it to maturity, especially if it is female. The Southern Resident killer whale population is now 75.
