Meet a few of the mammals we have identified so far!

Porpoises

Jaws

One of our favorites, Jaws was named for the distinctive coloration on its flank which reminded us of a great white shark!  We have seen this porpoise many times in the Pass, and since we’ve seen it several times with a calf we think it’s a female.

Dodge

This porpoise is another regular to Burrows Pass.  It has many scars and abrasions so has likely had a few “close calls”, but seems to be doing well now.  It is one of the original porpoises we identified when starting our photo-ID study.

Seals

Hedwig

Named for an owl like pattern of spots on the back, this young
animal was seen a couple days apart in Burrows Pass.

Treasure

Named for the ‘X marks the spot’ pattern on the back.
We have seen this animal once so far.
