New orca

Strait of Georgia’s J-pod has new year’s baby.

James Dale, executive director of Pacific Whale Watch Association, also based in Friday Harbor, said bringing up babies is usually a pod effort.

“It is pretty amazing. I think we humans forget they don’t come out of the womb ready to go,” he said.

Language, socialization and salmon-catching techniques are among lessons that have to be taught to young orcas, Dale said.
