Killer Whale (Orca)
Protected by the following WLT projects:
The Killer Whale, or Orca, is an impressive predator at 9.5 metres long, and weighing in at 8 tonnes. Killer whales feed on a wide variety of prey, and occur all over the world.
Orcas are intelligent and are able to adapt and communicate information to each other. One dramatic example of this are the whales that beach themselves in order to catch seals (see link to video in the learn more section).
