Birth Year: 2005

Eclipse (J41) is a female killer whale who was born in 2005. She is the only surviving calf of Shachi (J19). Eclipse was very tiny when she was born and researchers feared that like her brother, J29, she would not survive, but she has grown and thrived. Eclipse became a mother in February 2015 with the birth of a son, Nova (J51). At only 10 years old, Eclipse was the youngest known mother in the Southern Resident community.
