On January 12th 2020 our colleagues from AWF spotted a group of orcas off Peniche going north. The cellphone videos is very pixilated and makes the photo-ID task almost impossible. However it is possible to recognise in one of the videos, the matriarch Toni 011. These orcas very likely belong to the Iberian population and likely belonging to Toni’s matriline, Omega’s or Lamari‘s matrilines, as the rest of the individuals are highly subjective to identify.
It is not too farfetch to consider that this orca pod passed by Lisbon on the 11th or the 10th.
