Rare Baby Orca Born In The Wild

The Whale Centre in Tofino, British Columbia has revealed that a new calf was spotted earlier this month swimming with his or her family who belong to the endangered orca population known as the Southern Residents.

There are only 75 whales left alive in the endangered Southern Resident orca community living off the coast of the USA. Every birth is precious and brings hope for the whales’ future. We are over the moon about the safe arrival of this new baby, and have our fingers, toes, and everything else crossed for this little orca’s future.
