Vancouver Aquarium - Vote for Springer's Calf!

Hey everone! Here a special request!

My name was shortlisted as a name for Springer’s new calf. It’s “Pinhorn” after Pinhorn Islet in Nodales Channel. Nodales (A51) was a female from the A25 matriline and she was the one who cared for little Springer when she returned to her native waters. She played an important role in the successful reintroduction of Springer. Sadly Nodales passed away in 2011 and her matriline will die out if her only calf Cordero is a boy.

I would feel so honored if you voted for my name, but I know that the other suggestions are good as well :)
