Sightings Report - August 28th 2019

Yesterday the T10s and T109As were traveling together in the Juan de Fuca. The T109A family consists of females and young juveniles, so having the company of T10C, a 20 year old bull, can provide great help in hunting larger prey such as sea lions.

These families mixing also gives T10C the opportunity to mate with the mature females of the T109As. With T10, his mother, being post-menopausal, and him being her only surviving offspring, she will want to ensure her genes are passed on through him! She is in charge of who he can mate with and will assist him in finding females willing to breed with him.

The two groups passed through Race Rocks and then spent time around Becher Bay looking for seals close to shore.
