Human society can learn much from killer whale society. Killer whales families, surprisingly, experience very little strife. Violence towards one another is virtually unheard of. Occasionally you might see some scrapes and scars on their back from both play and minor disagreements and, in the case of unruly calves, discipline from mom. But if there are any major conflicts between animals in a pod, they appear to solve them in a peaceful manner. Even the different populations and ecotypes coexist in peace. For major too predators, this is rare. Even humans cannot seem to refrain from violence for too long. Meanwhile, killer whales have been doing so for thousands, if not millions of years. Perhaps it’s time for us to take a lesson from these enigmatic creatures. #orca#killerwhale#alaska#kachemakbay#homeralaska#whale#whalewatching#cetacean#blackfish#seaworldsucks#pacificnorthwest#westcoast#ocean#nature#sea#wildlife
Killer Whales yesterday! We had a group of 4 Killer Whales on our 9am trip which delighted our guests. Whatever they had hundreds and eaten attracted quite a few birds to the area including Black-footed Albatross. Photo by Eric Austin Yee.
We are very excited to share our new blog series, Tales of Saving Whales, with you! We want to focus on personal stories about what you do to help whales (and marine life) emphasizing on how every small action can help. We will be highlighting individual stories on social media but you can read all of the stories on our website, whale-tales.org! @vitalocean has always liked taking photos but it was the whales who turned that like into a love and passion. Working for a whale watching company allows her to pursue both passions but she would love to see whales and other marine mammals all over the world. To read her (and others!) #talesofsavingwhales posts head to our website (link in bio) #whaletales#whales#savethewhales#killerwhale#orca#whalewatching#whalesareawesome#whalesofinstagram#getonaboat#dolphinawarenessmonth
