Orcas chase a bait ball of herring in Norway by @paulnicklen Killer Whales are the ocean’s top predator and their intelligence is truly brought to light when we watch them hunt. While captivity typically strips them of this vital and enriching part of their life, they find their own ways to hunt unsuspecting creatures, most often opportunistic birds who hope to steal the odd frozen fish. Orcas at SeaWorld San Diego are particularly well-known for hunting birds, doing so by using one of the fish given to them by their trainers to lure their victim to the water’s edge and then pulling it beneath the surface. The feathered friend is most often dismembered into little pieces for a trainer to recover at a later date.

Look at these gorgeous offshore killer whales! This elusive eco-type was first discovered in 1979 when they were spotted off Haida Gwaii, Canada. Living far offshore has made them wary of boats so little is known about this unique population. What we do know is that they’re shark-killers and enjoy feasting on Pacific Sleeper Sharks, particularly their fatty livers. Photography by @slatermoorephotography

#DidYouKnow ? At birth, orca calves are around 8.5 feet long? That's about 12 water bottles long ! 😮 - Follow our friend @protectingoceans for more 💙

In 1976 SeaWorld convinced 35,000 guests to write to their local congressman to oppose House Bill 12460 that would ban killer whale captures in U.S waters until the "worldwide survival prospects of the species had been clarified". 35,000 letters to try and convince the U.S government to allow the decimation of killer whale populations so SeaWorld, and other marine parks like it, could continue to torment and exploit young orca calves for profit... Imagine the impact 35,000 letters could have if they were directed towards Governor Jay Inslee and urged him to breach or remove the lower Snake River dams to save the very same population SeaWorld helped to decimate. .

Great news today as another one of the Whale Prison’s killer whales has integrated into a wild pod! Zina is now travelling with a pod of 14 transient orca while little Alexandra has joined two older female orcas who were also released from the Whale Prison. Let’s hope the good news keeps coming. In the mean time, enjoy this stunning wild orca captured on camera by Whale Watch Norway.

While the dimensions of killer whale tanks have improved since the 1960s there's still one cruel aspect that remains almost entirely unchanged - barren, featureless tanks. For captive killer whales their underwater world is defined by four concrete walls. Artificial rocks are a rarity. Live fish even more so. Outside of cetaceans, no other animals in accredited zoological facilities are treated with such an ignorant and neglectful approach towards their environment and their intelligence. Why do marine parks treat these animals like they know nothing about them?

J27 Blackberry breaching! Blackberry is one of our beloved Southern Resident killer whales. Unfortunately this population is critically endangered with only 73 individuals left. To help their fight against extinction we’ve sent over 460 letters to Governor Jay Inslee urging him to breach the Snake River dams which threaten the Southern Resident’s survival. . To send your own letter use the following details: . Governor Jay Inslee Office of the Governor PO Box 40002 Olympia, WA 98504-0002 . We must fight for Blackberry and his family! .
