Volume 3 of Orcas In Our Midst: Residents and Transients – How Did That Happen?
This full color 32-page (plus cover) 8” x 10” booklet looks at the astounding natural history of orcas and their plight in our modern world. The focus is on fish-eating resident orcas and the mammal-eating transients of the Salish Sea (Puget Sound, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and Georgia Strait). Readers will discover the wide variety of tradition-bound orca societies found worldwide, their specialized diets and vocalizations, and how these distinct communities may have appeared over time, plus a wide array of interesting facts and some fascinating glimpses into the lives of these natives of our inland waters. Illustrated with stunning photographs and graphics.
