J34 skeleton goes on display

Marine Connection – April 12, 2019

The skeleton of J34, a male southern resident killer whale found dead in December 2016, will soon be on display for the public to view as an exhibit at the Tems Swiya Museum, British Columbia.

Weighing 450 pounds and approximately 22 feet long, the skeleton is all that’s left of the large male orca who was discovered floating near the Trail Islands. A preliminary necropsy attributed the whale’s death to blunt force trauma to the dorsal side which could have been caused by a boat. The whale was only 18 years old and a member of the J pod group of the southern resident killer whale population.

The exhibit will open Monday, April 15 2019.
