Art Description

Photography: Color, Digital on Canvas, Paper.

To understand L87 one must understand the level of family bonding that the Southern Resident Orcas experience. In their matrilineal family structure males stay with their mothers for life with profound implications on behavior should their mother die. L87's mother died in 2005 when he was 13 year old, whereupon he travelled with a K pod Matriarch K7 until she died 3 years later. He then travelled with K11 for 2 years until she died, and then J8 for 3 years until she died in 2013. Since then he has travelled with J2 Granny, the matriarch of the community who may be as much as 101 years old.
