Shirt showing J POD saddle patch and dorsal fins. Designed and printed on San Juan Island by local artist Jenn Rigg.

Who is that facing the opposite direction?

It is Onyx (L-87)! He is from L Pod and joined J Pod in 2010.

He is the only known orca in the Southern Resident Community to have switched pods on a permanent basis!

When his family, the L12 subgroup meet up with J Pod, Onyx will spend time with his birth family. When they depart, Onyx stays with J Pod!
