A New Calf in Clayoquot Sound – 18/7/22

The T109As were in Clayoquot Sound again today along with their newest calf T109A3A born within the last 6 months. They had several successful hunts as they made their way around rocks, reefs and islets in the outer Sound.

The T109 “Big Momma” matriline has over 20 individuals now! They often travel in 5 separate pods but have been seen coming together at times.

Transient/Biggs orcas typically travel in smaller pods than the fish eating residents. When multiple resident pods join together we call it a “superpod” but when multiple Transient pods come together it’s often referred to as a “T-party”.
