TailRing was first photographed in 2005 and has been photographed consistently since then.  TailRing has been identified on both the right and left sides and is a presumed mother based on photographs with an accompanying calf.  TailRing has unique injuries that indicate this whale was either entangled  or was possibly involved in a ship strike. Her injury affects the way she swims. We last photographed this whale in 2016. Please share photos if you see her!
