J-41 ECLIPSE

 I was born in 2005 and am 12 years old.  My Mom is Shachi (J-19) and I am pleased to say she is still alive. We have lost too many young mothers!

When I was 10 years old I had my first baby, a boy named Nova (J-51). My Mom helped my baby come to the surface to take his first gulps of air. She babysits Nova and makes sure we have plenty to eat. I was very young to have my first baby so really appreciated my mother being around!

My name is Flora, I am 9 years old and I love orcas!  I love how beautiful they are and I want to protect them from oil spills. My whale is Eclipse( J-41) and she is 12 years old.  She is older than me!  Whales can get very old and I want her to be able to grow old and live in healthy water. I want her babies to live a long time and their babies too.
