June 14th - T124C, T124A's and Harbour Porpoises near Snake Island!
Today we were lucky enough to find Orcas right near Nanaimo! T124C, Cooper, and the T124A’s were hanging out near Snake Island outside the Nanaimo Harbour and a group of roughly 15 Harbour Porpoises were spotted just north of Entrance Island!
The T124A pod members are Kittiwake (T124A), Elkugu (T124A2), Agafia (T124A2A), Wasini (T124A3), and Sabio (T124A4).
Unfortunately Harbour Porpoises are quite shy and timid, so it is quite challenging to capture a photo of them. Today we sadly were not lucky enough to get a clear photo of them.
Orca fun fact: curling the tips of the fluke (seen below) is only possible in male Orcas.
Cooper (T124C) was present today. Cooper is known as a Lone male- he does not have his own pod that he swims with. Instead, he roams the sea solo and socializes with pods he comes across.
Cooper is pretty easy to identify due to his large size, and distinct notch in his dorsal fin. Do you see it in the photo below?
