New post from CIRCE on the new baby orca and their name!

Background check on the newborn orca (OO_GIB_056) that made it to the CetIdMed photo-identification catalogue of the Strait of Gibraltar. Mum is OO_GIB_018 and was born around 2002 from grand-mother “Muesca” (OO_GIB_009), first identified in 2000 in the Strait! They all belong to “Camacho” and “Toni“‘s pod. We would like to call this newborn whale “Robin”, in tribute to the memory of US actor Robin Williams, what do you think?

Cute name.<3
