If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls who live under tyranny. ~ Thomas Jefferson ~

The Pacific Whale Watch Association reports that J-Pod's orca preschool, located in a calm
inlet in the Salish Sea, has pulled off a miracle. During the birthing season this late spring,
several calves were born. Sadly, they lost one female member while giving birth, dropping the
pod's population to 77 whales. However, about two weeks later the Pod did something amazing.
Researchers and observers believe that two pod members actually mid-wifed the birth of one calf,
dubbed J50, by pulling the baby out of its mother. The teeth marks can still be seen on J50's back.
And, since the amazing birth, J50 has astounded observers by demonstrating repetitive
breaching and belly flopping that can only be described as joy.
"I've never seen a baby whale breach like J50's been doing," said Michael Harris, executive director
of PWWA. "Her energy is astounding; I guess not unlike my small kids. She's constantly leaping into
the air, and often curling up and doing belly flops. Of course we don't know exactly why orcas breach,
but when you see a young one do what J50's been doing, over and over again, and being so playful
and affectionate as she is with her family members, you sorta' lose that cold scientific analysis
and just conclude she's leaping for joy. It's definitely a joy to watch."
On July 4, whale watchers on an Eagle Wings Tour in Victoria got a show from J50.
"J50 stole the show, and hearts, with more than 60 breaches as she and her family moved south
in Haro Strait," said Clint Rivers, a naturalist and photographer. "It's like she just figured out how this
breaching thing works and couldn't stop. She was still breaching well into the evening."
"Maybe all this exuberance somehow has something to do with her miracle birth," said Harris.
"Who knows? Maybe the other members of her family realize how precious she is, and how close
she came to never making it into this world. Perhaps with all of this love surrounding her, this baby
orca is just bursting with happiness. There's no doubt that J50 feels safe and well-cared for,
like all of these babies are. We have some amazing families out there."
