J44 Moby born to J17 (Princess Angeline), her third calf, February, 2009
Moby is a male from the J-pod. It’s his birthday this month! He will be 12 years old, young and playful, a time for him to play with his niece, Star, and nephew, Notch. Moby has two siblings and many half-siblings too, he is so lucky to have so many playmates. It is sad to know, his mother, named Princess Angeline, went missing in the summer of 2019, then was presumed dead that August. What happened, we don’t know. Life in the Salish Sea is full of so many dangers and food might be scarce, a whale’s life is hard.
Princess Angeline- J17 (Mother, deceased)
Star- J46 (Niece)
Tahlequah- J35 (sister)
Kiki- J53 (sister)
