RIP J28 Polaris
Her loss is made even more tragic by the additional loss of her most recent calf J54. At less than a year old and still nursing, his survival is unlikely without his mother to feed him. He was last seen on October 23 and is now presumed deceased. This brings the year’s losses up to 4 (L95, J14, J28 and J54) and the population back down to 80.
More then ever, we need to look toward more fish as the primary solution in saving the endangered Southern Resident Killer Whale Population.
It is fairly simple … No Fish No Blackfish
