Orcas of the Oregon Coast

September 17 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Presenter: Colleen Weiler          

Killer whales, also known as orcas, are perhaps the most widely recognized type of whale or dolphin in the world. With their distinctive black-and-white coloring, tall dorsal fins, & reputation as top predators, everyone knows what an orca is & how they live–or do we? Orcas aren’t just the “wolves” of the sea,” they live in incredibly close family groups, have life spans similar to ours,  and are one of the best examples of culture in non-human society. How are orcas connected to Oregon, and what can we do to ensure their survival?  See  https://www.myowf.org/single-post/2019/07/01/An-Alliance-for-Change  and  https://www.myowf.org/nwnaturematters/episode/99402be2/18-elakha-the-restoration-of-sea-otters-in-oregon
