Baby boom: Endangered grandma orca gives birth to J53.

The Center for Whale Research in Friday Harbor confirmed on its Facebook page this weekend that a newborn orca designated as J53 was seen traveling Saturday in Haro Strait with a 38-year-old orca known as Princess Angeline. Michael Harris, the executive director of the Pacific Whale Watch Association, says the whale watch community is referring to the baby boom as the “class of 2015.” There could be more babies on the way.
