The Whale Museum's September 2015
Announcing Baby Names!
Thank you so much to the more than 3,000 of you who voted to help Name the Babies. Voting took place on line, in our exhibit hall and even at the San Juan County Fair. The contest is now over. The babies are named! These four very cute babies are now available for adoption!
Scarlet is the sixth calf of Slick (J-16). She was first seen December 30, 2014. Based on the rake marks on Scarlet's body, it appears her birth may have been assisted. She is a spunky young whale who has thrived in spite of her challenging beginning. Click here to adopt Scarlet.

Nova is the first offspring of Eclipse (J-41). He has the distinction of being born to the youngest known mother in the community. At the age of just a few months, he was already having 'play dates' with Notch (J-47). Click here to adopt Nova.

Sonic is the first offspring of Alki (J-36). In early March 2015, he was welcomed into his family group, the J16s. Sonic was the third calf born to J Pod within a three-month time period. Sonic has saddle patch markings similar to his aunt, Echo (J-42).

Windsong is the second calf of Calypso (L-94). He was first seen on the outer coast of Washington in February 2015 by NOAA researchers. Windsong has an older sister, Cousteau (L-113), who was born in October 2009. These two siblings are often seen socializing. Click here to adopt Windsong.
