Orca Families and Ecotypes


Welcome to our online Nature Series. Our first four presentations feature marine educator Mikaela Montanari who explains orca ecotypes, their differences in territory, appearance, diet, foraging habits, and even their social behaviours. Learn about their importance as a species and their prospects for survival.


Scientists have discovered several distinct types of orcas, commonly known as "killer whales", that frequent Pacific Northwest waters. Learn about the orca ecotypes and pods that are being tracked.
