Twenty – three year old L77 showed up near Vancouver B.C. with a new baby in tow yesterday – the first one she is documented to have had (although there may have been previous unknown births). This calf was given the number L-114 by the Center for Whale Research, and brings the total population of Southern Resident orcas living in the wild to 89 (this excludes “Lolita”, the member of L-pod who lives in captivity).

Let’s hope this baby boom continues!
