Venture, named after Venture Point (50°17’44”N, 125°20’24”W) on Sonora Island, is a young male killer whale born in 2018. Venture is the first calf of Current (A79) and Venture’s grandmother is matriarch, Sonora (A42). Venture is a member of one of three matrilines in a pod known to researchers as A5 pod. It is one of the best known northern resident pods because it normally spends a great deal of time in Johnstone strait during the summer and was one of the first groups of B.C. killer whales to be identified by researchers in the early 1970s.
