J58 is a girl!
The Center for Whale Research is pleased to confirm that J41’s calf, J58, is female.
This approximately 6-month-old calf was born in September 2020.
Jeanne Hyde photographed J58 from shore on March 6. The calf was rolling, showing her underside, which revealed her gender.
New females in the Southern Resident killer whale community are critical to the population’s sustainability. We celebrate this news!
