Killer whales, also commonly referred to as orcas are one of the most iconic and striking species on our planet. In BC, we are lucky to share our coastal waters with several populations of orcas. BCkillerwhales.com and the BC Killer Whale Research Report have been established to promote conservation of orcas in BC by upholding the conservation-based scientific research conducted by several organizations. This website outlines what we know of the natural history of orcas and our journey in learning about them. Additionally through social media we provide news and research updates on killer whales in British Columbia.
