Killer Whales of the Coast
Killer whales are an iconic symbol of the Pacific Northwest and deeply rooted in First Nations culture as a symbol of community and protection. Their complex intellect, behaviour, language, and culture, provide excellent opportunities to learn about adaptations, survival needs, sustainability of systems, and current threats and stewardship.
Killer whales have been a hot topic in the news recently with our local southern resident population diminishing and demonstrating desperate need for imminent conservation efforts to avoid extinction. It is important now, more than ever, to understand about these fascinating creatures and what is at stake.
This interactive presentation provides an in-depth look at the history and rich culture, language, and ecotypes of the iconic killer whales of the Pacific Northwest. In addition, the current challenges and conservation efforts will be highlighted with discussions on recent news stories. Guaranteed to engage and enlighten any crowd.
