K34 Cali born to K13 (Skagit), her fourth calf, Oct./Nov. 2001
Cali was born in 2001 in the K-pod and is now 19 years old and doing just fine. He will be 20 in the fall, so watch out lady Orcas, he will just be starting to think about dating. Cali’s mother, Skagit, had 4 offspring. Two sisters and a brother. Sadly, his older brother died in May 2019, two years after mom Skagit ,who died in the winter of 2017. Cali’s two older sisters Spock and Deadhead are doing very well. Father Mega from the L-pod has many offspring so Cali has several half-siblings as well as two nephews and an uncle. He surely isn’t lonely hunting and playing in the Salish Sea.
