A recent baby boom has brought hope to a fragile killer whale population off the B.C. coast. Plus who doesn't love baby photos?
The second-oldest of four young orcas breached more than 60 times in one afternoon in front of Rivers' camera.
What a show off!
In total, four babies were born to three different pods between December 2014 and March this year, bringing the population to 81 for the southern resident orcas.
Listed as endangered in both Canada and the United States, they spend most of the summer in the waters around southern Vancouver Island and northern Washington.
According to the Vancouver Aquarium, the southern residents' population is declining because their diet depends on chinook salmon, a food supply that has dwindled in recent years.
